Thanks. Sure, it makes sense to make the generic attribute configurable
through the netdevice ops or netlink implementation. I will keep that in
mind while adding the next set of configuration attributes for the driver.
These attributes(from the patch) however, are hardware specific(that show
the maximum supported values by the hardware in most cases). We want them
to be a part of sysfs so that they are readily available in the production
for improving debuggability. I will change the names of these attribute to
indicate the same to avoid possible confusion.
