My main thought here is that there is nothing which doesn't belong
in sysfs-bus-counter to my mind anyway.

Given both existing devices have this, I'm guessing it is generic enough
to graduate to the generic sysfs documentation file.

Given for the previous device we had individual inputs (which to my mind
made no sense to disable separately) perhaps we should have this as the
generic option. If a driver needs to separately disable the two signals
then that is up to it to sort out.

At least this way we reduce the guessing any userspace code will need
to do in order to turns things on.

Again, looks pretty generic...
