/proc entries

-* /proc/subchannels
- This entry shows information on a per-subchannel basis.
- The data is ordered in the following way:
- - device number
- - subchannel number
- - device type/model (if applicable; if not, this is empty) and control unit
- type/model
- - whether the device is in use (i. e. a device driver has requested ownership
- and registered an interrupt handler)
- - path installed mask (PIM), as reflected by last store subchannel
- - path available mask (PAM), as reflected by last store subchannel
- - path operational mask (POM), as reflected by last store subchannel
- - the channel path IDs (CHPIDs)
- All fields are separated by spaces, the chpids are in blocks of four chpids.

/proc/s390dbf/cio_*/level a number between 0 and 6; see the documentation on
the S/390 debug feature (Documentation/s390/s390dbf.txt) for details.

-* /proc/irq_count
- This entry counts how many times s390_process_IRQ has been called for each
- CPU. This info is in /proc/interrupts on other architectures.
-* /proc/chpids
- This entry serves a dual purpose:
- - show which chpids are currently known to Linux and their status (online,
- logically offline),
- - toggling known chpids logically online/offline.
- To toggle a known chpid logically offline, do an
- echo off <chpid> > /proc/chpids
- <chpid> is interpreted as hex, even if you omit the '0x'.
- The chpid will be treated by Linux as if it were not online, which can mean
- some devices will become unavailable.
- You can toggle a logically offline chpid online again by
- echo on <chpid> > /proc/chpids
- If devices became unavailable by toggling the chpid logically offline, they
- will become available again after you toggle the chpid online again.
+* For some of the information present in the /proc filesystem in 2.4 (namely,
+ /proc/subchannels and /proc/chpids), see driver-model.txt.
+ Information formerly in /proc/irq_count is now in /proc/interrupts.

+Each ccwgroup device also provides an 'ungroup' attribute to destroy the device

To implement a ccwgroup driver, please refer to include/asm/ccwgroup.h. Keep in
mind that most drivers will need to implement both a ccwgroup and a ccw driver
(unless you have a meta ccw driver, like cu3088 for lcs and ctc).
