Subject[PATCH] RFC: Attributes in /sys/cdev
From
Date
I assume that the (empty, currently) entries in /sys/cdev are there for
some purpose... for purposes of my own, I've been thinking that it would
be nice to be able to find which device numbers got assigned when using the
new char dev registration functions. Thus, the following patch, which adds
default "dev" and "count" attributes to /sys/cdev entries.

I have no idea whether this follows the original plan for /sys/cdev.
There *is* a plan for it, no...?
