Hi Greg,

Thanks for your review.

Sorry, I didn't notice the document issues.

Yes, you are right, the length of "buf" should be limited here.
I saw in this file, one sysfs only has one value here. But the memory
has more than one region and may be discontinuous, so I stitch the string.
So should I send the new version, or you think this feature should not
be placed here?

Thanks,
Chao Fan
