Subject[PATCH 4.14 019/185] power: supply: sysfs: ratelimit property read error message
Date
From: David Lechner <david@lechnology.com>

[ Upstream commit 87a2b65fc855e6be50f791c2ebbb492541896827 ]

This adds rate limiting to the message that is printed when reading a
power supply property via sysfs returns an error. This will prevent
userspace applications from unintentionally dDOSing the system by
continuously reading a property that returns an error.
