Thanks for pointing it out. Technically, now it's possible to set a
negative value - internally, the kernel
will process negative integers anyway, and after casting the unsigned
value to a signed one, retval
will contain exactly what the user provided. However, if the user
retrieves the attribute value, they won't
get the exact value that was set (if it was negative).

I'll change debugfs_create_u32 to something else in v4, so that it'll
be more explicit and so that it'll be
possible to read negative values normally.
