A full sysfs path really looks pretty ugly, partly because we'd have
to really change all our naming (look at PCI devices now: they end up
looking like


where that "0000:00" is duplicated because we wanted to make
dev_name() look nice).

I think Dmitry's idea to stop when we hit the actual "physical" device
might just work in practice. So we'd show the dev_name() of the actual
piece of hardware, and then perhaps one or two "layering" details on
top of it. And it wouldn't change anything for the current common case
where people tend to pass in the physical device as-is.
