The EC log is under debugfs (I assume that the daemon reads the log from there)
so I think that this new attribute should be in debugfs instead of sysfs.

Also would be good if you can document this interface, I know that current
debugfs interface for cros-ec is not documented, but if you can at least start
documenting the ABI I'd appreciate. (Documentation/ABI/testing/debugfs-cros-ec)

Please add a changelog so is more to track what changed from v1 to v2.

Please sort function local variables declaration in a reverse christmas
tree order:

<type_a> longest_variable_name;
<type_b> shorter_var_name;
<type_c> even_shorter;
<type_d> i;

kzmalloc ?

Not needed if you use kzmalloc.

Not needed if you use kzmalloc.

You didn't take in consideration my comments on v1 ...

That an error (because the command is not supported or other
reason). You're overlaping the error. Why not just goto an exit label, free the
memory and return the error.

Or there is a problem on returning an error?

Then that else is not needed.

And you can remove time_since_ec_boot_ms

And print directly resp->time_since_ec_boot_ms

Would be good if we can make this attribute only visible when is supported. I am
not sure if is possible though.
