That seems a little suboptimal to me. It's pretty trivial for the kernel
to distinguish between different SoC generations in order to know what
the fields are. It's a lot more difficult for userspace to do so. Is the
register completely different between SoC generations or just slightly?

Having individual fields exposed as individual attributes seems like it
would make it a lot easier for userspace to get at the needed bits.

Would it be better to print this as hexadecimal?

I guess we print all of these as decimal, so hidrev should probably be
the same, so never mind the previous comment.
