Subject[PATCH v1 58/63] Input: atmel_mxt_ts: Remove sysfs attributes during driver detach
From: Sanjeev Chugh <>

This change prevents a scenario when sysfs attributes for Atmel touch
controller driver are being accessed by userland while touch driver
module unloading has already begun. At present, sysfs attribute files
are created at device probe but they are not removed while driver is
being detached.

This change will prevent calls to generic driver layer when the sysfs
driver attributes files are already deleted. Therefore, kernel will not
attempt to invoke driver routines for showing the sysfs atrributes.
