So in the 3rd Edition of your book, Robert, can you pleasepleaseplease
add a chapter for "Making your driver play nice with others, including
HAL" that has a section on what to do to get the correct sysfs entries,
ie stuff like SET_NETDEV_DEV and ensuring the sysfs 'driver' link is
correct by passing the correct driver structure to the device init
routines (which I believe is SET_MODULE_OWNER)?

It seems there's complete lack of documentation on how to make drivers
interact with sysfs.
