Thanks for review comments from all.

I will change from the incorrect 0400 to 0444.

As for S_IFREG, it does seem like leaving off S_IFREG is the most common
case when using octal permissions with debugfs_create_*():

$ git grep debugfs_create drivers/ |grep 0444 |grep -v S_IFREG | wc -l
302
$ git grep debugfs_create drivers/ |grep 0444 |grep S_IFREG | wc -l
9

As noted by Andy, this is okay as the S_IFREG flag is added to the mode
__debugfs_create_file() inside fs/debugfs/inode.c. I will note this in
the commit message.

Thank you,
Drew
