SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] hwmon: (ucd9000) Add sysfs attribute to clear logged faults

I am not in favor of such chip specific commands, in this case for several
reasons (besides it being a non-standard attribute).

The logged faults are not read or used by the driver in the first place.
Clearing them doesn't add any benefit for the driver.

The command as written only clears non-paged logged faults, but no paged
faults.

While PMBus "lingo" talks of faults, those are really often just status bits,
not "faults" from hwmon perspective.

The content of the various fault bits and bites is highly chip specific.
On top of that, each chip supported by the driver has different fault bits
and bytes.

To read the logged faults you have to access the chip directly, not through
the driver. I don't see the benefit of providing a sysfs attribute to clear
non-paged logged faults, but not doing anything else with it.

If you want to do something special with those faults (or status bits/nytes),
it might be more appropriate to create debugfs entries.

Thanks,
Guenter
