Add on patches are easy to create for this if people really want and
need it :)

What do you mean by this exactly?

As it is, this is a step forward in getting attributes that people are
asking for and already using, into the kernel tree. Please don't object
because not all attributes that are possible are being added here, it
should be trivial to add more as needed, right?

I'm really tired of seeing all of the various out-of-tree forks of this
driver, it's about time that someone works to get those features merged,
