This patch set _does_ that, though.

It does that as well (a subset at least).

It sounds like the subset that's being exposed is insufficient for yo
We did that because we think doing anything but a subset in sysfs will
just blow up sysfs: MAX_NUMNODES is as high as 1024, so if we have 4
attributes, that's at _least_ 1024*1024*4 files if we expose *all*
combinations.

Do we agree that sysfs is unsuitable for exposing attributes in this manner?
