I updated the commit log to show a more encouraged example and a couple
of the DEVICE_ATTR() into DEVICE_ATTR_WO() in a new patch while adding
that patch to the series.

This was changed.

As well as this one.

Since the DEVICE_ATTR_RW() would change the permissions to '0644', I left
these alone for now. Once confirmed which direction to go, it is my
intention to either add a comment stating the permission '0664' is okay to
use here, or changing the permissions accordingly. This will be
accomplished in a separate patch.

Thank you for pointing these others out, too. I appreciate all your help
with this, Greg. Let me know if there's anything else you spot you'd like
changed.
