SubjectRe: [PATCH v10 8/9] proc: use human-readable values for hidehid

In principle I like this change. In practice I think you have just
broken ABI compatiblity with the new mount ABI.

In particular the following line seems broken.

As I read fs_parser.c fs_param_is_u32 handles string inputs and turns them
into numbers, and it handles binary numbers. However fs_param_is_string
appears to only handle strings. It appears to have not capacity to turn
raw binary numbers into strings.

So I think we probably need to fix fs_param_is_string to raw binary
numbers before we can safely make this change to fs/proc/root.c

David am I reading the fs_parser.c code correctly? If I am are you ok
with a change like the above?
