SubjectRe: [RESEND v4 4/6] Documentation: misc-devices: Add Documentation for dw-xdata-pcie driver
Hi Gustavo,

The driver does not seem to offer any parameters (aside of using sysfs
for runtime settings), and it also seem to only print what it's doing
when debug level is enabled - unless I am missing something?

When I do the following:

# echo 1 > /sys/kernel/dw-xdata-pcie/write
# echo 1 > /sys/kernel/dw-xdata-pcie/stop
# cat /sys/kernel/dw-xdata-pcie/write

Would output from cat above simply show "0 MB/s" then? I wonder how
someone using this new driver could tell whether "write" or "read"
traffic generation has been enabled aside of reading the sysfs files,
would adding "/sys/kernel/dw-xdata-pcie/active" be an overkill here?

What do you think?

Krzysztof
