Yeah, 644 is "clear", but _RW() is even more clear. Ideally I want to

much better.

Why you didn't send that patch to the sysfs maintainer is a bit odd... :)

I should be taking this whole series through my tree. Joe, thanks for
doing this in an automated way, I've been wanting to see this done for a
long time.
