OK. I will go ahead with this approach then.

Will merge them.

I remember the reason of adding the read-back was to prevent race
condition. But now we have mutex protections for all sysfs nodes,
maybe it's not necessary anymore. I will read the code carefully
and see if it's safe to remove it -- will do in a separate patch.
