Default attributes of the bus.

No, this is called when the driver core wants to know if this driver can
accept this device. It does not do an "attach" here.

"device plug"? No, not always, it is for when a device is added,
removed, or a few other things that generate uevents.

All of these can get more descriptions, right?

p is private to the driver core, not to the subsystem. Only the driver
core can touch this.

The module owner.

Huh?

No, this is an open firmware table.

To bind.

Suspend is more than a "low power state"

Same here.

Default attributes that get created by the driver core automatically.

Again, the driver core's private data, not the driver's private data,
very big difference. No one other than the driver core can touch this.

Same goes for the other comments you added...

I think this needs a whole lot more description than what you have
provided in order for it to be acceptable.

Care to work on it?

thanks,
