One file with all of that? We are going to run into problems
eventually, that should be split up.

Just like bugs, that's going to just grow over time and eventually
overflow PAGE_SIZE :(

Make this:
├── flags
│   ├── fpu
│   ├── vme
...

Much simpler to parse, right?

sysfs files need to be one-value-per-file, and that's a lot of different
values in a single file.

How did I miss that before?

Boilerplate and SPDX.

You did run these through checkpatch.pl, right? It should have
complained about this.

thanks,
