Eeek! Why? What's wrong with individual files here? What's to ensure
that you aren't going to overflow your buffer? There's a reason we
don't have the seq file interface for sysfs, to prevent this very kind
of thing...

Nope, no error checking, fun chance of blowing the memory buffer :(

Please change the interface to not do this.

Oh, and for every new sysfs file, you need a Documentation/ABI/
addition, please also add that.

thanks,
