[PATCH] libfs: add simple attribute files
Based on the discussion about spufs attributes, this is my suggestion for a more generic attribute file support that can be used by both debugfs and spufs. Simple attribute files behave similarly to sequential files from a kernel programmers perspective in that a standard set of file operations is provided and only an open operation needs to be written that registers file specific get() and set() functions. These operations are defined as void foo_set(void *data, u64 val); and u64 foo_get(void *data); where data is the inode->u.generic_ip pointer of the file and the operations just need to make send of that pointer. The infrastructure makes sure this works correctly with concurrent access and partial read calls. A macro named DEFINE_SIMPLE_ATTRIBUTE is provided to further simplify using the attributes. This patch already contains the changes for debugfs to use attributes for its internal file operations. Signed-off-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
