This patch is just a move; here's the source of the line above:

I certainly support using DEVICE_ATTR_RO() instead of __ATTR_RO(), but
that should be down with a separate patch so it's not buried in what
is otherwise a simple move.

Same for these. It'd be nice to fix them (and similar cases in
pci-sysfs.c, rpadlpar_sysfs.c, sgi_hotplug.c, slot.c) but in a
separate patch.

I think Kelsey did the right thing here by not mixing unrelated fixes
in with the code move. A couple additional patches to change the
__ATTR() uses and the permissions (git grep "\<S_" finds several
possibilities) would be icing on the cake, but getting the SR-IOV
code all together is an improvement by itself.
