Subject[PATCH v2 0/2] use DEFINE_DEBUGFS_ATTRIBUTE instead of DEFINE_SIMPLE_ATTRIBUTE
Date
The debugfs_create_file_unsafe method does not protect the fops given to
it from file removal. It must be used with DEFINE_DEBUGFS_ATTRIBUTE
which makes the fops aware of the file lifetime.

Further using DEFINE_DEBUGFS_ATTRIBUTE along with
debugfs_create_file_unsafe significantly reduces the overhead introduced by
debugfs_create_file which creates a lifetime managing proxy around each
fops handed in. Refer [1] for more on this.

Fixes the following warnings reported by coccinelle:
drivers/iio/imu//adis16460.c:126:0-23: WARNING: adis16460_flash_count_fops should be defined with DEFINE_DEBUGFS_ATTRIBUTE
drivers/iio/imu//adis16460.c:108:0-23: WARNING: adis16460_product_id_fops should be defined with DEFINE_DEBUGFS_ATTRIBUTE
drivers/iio/imu//adis16460.c:90:0-23: WARNING: adis16460_serial_number_fops should be defined with DEFINE_DEBUGFS_ATTRIBUTE
drivers/iio/imu//adis16400.c:278:0-23: WARNING: adis16400_flash_count_fops should be defined with DEFINE_DEBUGFS_ATTRIBUTE
drivers/iio/imu//adis16400.c:261:0-23: WARNING: adis16400_product_id_fops should be defined with DEFINE_DEBUGFS_ATTRIBUTE
