You have to do some test for this patch
because you tried to use the 'delayed work' by this patch.

Actually, If possible, I want to apply some feature
if there are any real requirements.

hmm. I don't say that sysfs can't change the value at the runtime.
It is not proper answer from my opinion. Without any answer
from my opinion, you just say the feature of sysfs interface.
You and me already knew that user can change the value via sysfs.

As I commented above, I want to apply some feature
if there are any real requirements.
