I'm sorry for this mistake. Based on my code they should be ASCII char '1' and
'0' but not bitwise ops. I will fix this description.

That sounds good to me. I will refine this part by declaring an attribute_group
with a is_visible() callback.

Since udev can see kobject events when devices are added, I haven't seen any
risk if we make offline events visible too. Besides, normally online/eject
attributes can only be written by root in userspace.
