I'd probably merge this into the patch introducing the attribute.

"optional" implies "not always present" to me, not "might return a read
error if not available". Don't know if there's a better way to tag
this? Or make it really optional? :)

It's not really the parent, but the vendor driver requesting this,
right? Also, "each mdev" is a bit ambiguous, as this is only true for
the subset of mdevs created via that driver. Lastly, if we stick with
the "returns an error if not implemented" approach, that should also be
mentioned here.
