I am sorry. I didn't notice it via inspection but there is a bug in this
macro. When I actually try using it, compilation fails. Here's a likely
patch:

diff --git a/include/linux/sysfs.h b/include/linux/sysfs.h
index 5420817ed317..fa7ee503fb76 100644
--- a/include/linux/sysfs.h
+++ b/include/linux/sysfs.h
@@ -196,9 +196,9 @@ struct bin_attribute {
.size = _size, \

-#define __BIN_ATTR_WO(_name) { \
+#define __BIN_ATTR_WO(_name, _size) { \
.attr = { .name = __stringify(_name), .mode = 0200 }, \
- .store = _name##_store, \
+ .write = _name##_write, \
.size = _size, \
}

Thanks & Regards,
