Subject[PATCH v3 0/4] PCI: Clean up pci-sysfs.c
Date
This series is designed to clean up device attributes and permissions in
pci-sysfs.c. Then move the sysfs SR-IOV functions from pci-sysfs.c to
iov.c for better organization.

Patch 1: Define device attributes with DEVICE_ATTR* instead of __ATTR*.

Patch 2: Change permissions from symbolic to the preferred octal.

Patch 3: Change DEVICE_ATTR() with 0220 permissions to DEVICE_ATTR_WO().

Patch 4: Move sysfs SR-IOV functions to iov.c to keep the feature's code
together.


Patch 1, 2, and 4 will report unusual permissions '0664' used from the
following:

static DEVICE_ATTR(sriov_numvfs, 0664, sriov_numvfs_show,
sriov_numvfs_store);

static DEVICE_ATTR(sriov_drivers_autoprobe, 0664,
sriov_drivers_autoprobe_show,
sriov_drivers_autoprobe_store);

This series preserves the existing permissions set in:


commit 0e7df22401a3 ("PCI: Add sysfs sriov_drivers_autoprobe to control
VF driver binding")

commit 1789382a72a5 ("PCI: SRIOV control and status via sysfs")

Either adding a comment verifying permissions are okay or changing the
permissions is to be completed with a new patch.

Changes since v1:
Add patch 1 and 2 to fix the way device attributes are defined
and change permissions from symbolic to octal. Patch 4 which moves
sysfs SR-IOV functions to iov.c will then apply cleaner.

Changes since v2:

Patch 1: Commit log updated. Example shows DEVICE_ATTR_RO()
example instead of DEVICE_ATTR(). DEVICE_ATTR() should be avoided
unless the files have unusual permissions. Changed to reflect a
more encouraged usage. Also updated regex to be accurate.

Patch 3: [NEW] Add patch to change DEVICE_ATTR() with 0220
permissions to DEVICE_ATTR_WO().

Updated series log to reflect new patch and unusual permissions
information.
