I thought Greg was saying to using a sysfs binary attribute using
something like like sysfs_create_bin_file(). Those don't have the
PAGE_SIZE limitation. But, there's also nothing to keep us from spewing
nice human-readable text via the "binary" file.

We don't need to change the file format, just the internal kernel API
that we produce the files with.
