    This isn't configfs, and I didn't happen to notice any polite
    way for sysfs users to intercept "mkdir", parse the relevant
    directory name, reject illegal names, and pre-populate the
    just-created directory with relevant contents.

    Were you implying it should go into configfs? If so, do you
    maybe have an update to the patch I sent a day or so ago?
