I'm afraid I don't have enough asbestos in my underwear to try to
sneak this one past Linus.

A kernel ABI is an ABI even if it's not documented. Now, I wouldn't
mind getting flamed if we actually gained something from the change.
But just fixing a simple typo in sysfs files is not big enough a
reason for me to merge the patch.

That said, I love the second patch though and am more than happy to take it.
