SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/3] hwmon: (occ) Provide the SBEFIFO FFDC in binary sysfs

Hi Eddie,

Super! Some comments inline:

Use the enum here?

So any read from this file will clear out the FFDC data, making partial
reads impossible. As a least-intrusive change, could we set
SBE_ERROR_COLLECTED on write instead?

Or is there a better interface (a pipe?) that allows multiple FFDC
captures, destroyed on full consume, without odd read/write side
effects?

[...]

This will clear out the previous error it if hasn't been collected by
userspace. Is that really what you want for *first* fail data capture?
:)

Cheers,
