Just wanted to make you aware that this is probably going to conflict badly
with some patches we have pending to hook up the sysfs entries:

http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/linux-arm-kernel/2019-March/640326.html

That patch series isn't quite there yet, so I'm expecting a v7, but I think
it will change the shape of this patch quite a lot.

Will
