    A full sysfs path really looks pretty ugly, partly because we'd have
    to really change all our naming (look at PCI devices now: they end up
    looking like

    pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0

    where that "0000:00" is duplicated because we wanted to make
    dev_name() look nice).

    I think Dmitry's idea to stop when we hit the actual "physical" device
    might just work in practice. So we'd show the dev_name() of the actual
    piece of hardware, and then perhaps one or two "layering" details on
    top of it. And it wouldn't change anything for the current common case
    where people tend to pass in the physical device as-is.
