Right, I didn't mean to indicate opposition. Since mtd/spi-nor has certainly
got its set of quirky controllers and drivers (e.g. intel-spi does not support
reading the sfdp in its driver, currently), it might make sense to make these
attributes dependent on the driver. This mechanism also makes the attributes
available at KOBJ_BIND time, so spi_nor_scan() will have run, getting rid of
a pesky race condition with user space.

This comment was just to point out the implications and make sure you and
maintainers are okay with that approach.
