Remove extra newline.

Is this cast really needed?

Can this be const?

You need to document this in Documentation/ABI. While there, I think it
make sense to update Documentation/admin-guide/thunderbolt.rst
accordingly.

Also you are adding an attribute to a device that is already announced
to the userspace (I think). So it is possible userspace does not find
this when it deals with the uevent. Not sure if it is really a problem
in this case, though.

Other than that, looks nice to me :)
