Why do you need your own structure? Use the is_visible() callback to
create or not, the individual attributes for a specific device, don't
roll your own logic for something the driver core already supports.

No, you just raced with userspace, creating the sysfs files _after_ it
was told to userspace that the driver was bound to the device.

Please use the attribute groups for this driver to have the driver core
create the files before it it told to userspace.

Also, instead of using __ATTR(), please use DEVICE_ATTR_RO(), it makes
things easier to audit and saves me from having to change it later on
(I'm doing a tree-wide change of this type of thing...)

thanks,
