CC's trimmed, this is not a virtio issue.

Yeah, that was introduced by Alexey Dobriyan in 2006.  It didn't go
through me, though :(  New check is better.

allmodconfig says this breaks some things:

drivers/mtd/devices/docg3.c:
 	__ATTR(f##id##_dps0_protection_key, S_IWUGO, NULL, dps0_insert_key), \
	__ATTR(f##id##_dps1_protection_key, S_IWUGO, NULL, dps1_insert_key), \

drivers/regulator/virtual.c:
static DEVICE_ATTR(min_microvolts, 0666, show_min_uV, set_min_uV);
static DEVICE_ATTR(max_microvolts, 0666, show_max_uV, set_max_uV);
static DEVICE_ATTR(min_microamps, 0666, show_min_uA, set_min_uA);
static DEVICE_ATTR(max_microamps, 0666, show_max_uA, set_max_uA);
static DEVICE_ATTR(mode, 0666, show_mode, set_mode);

drivers/hid/hid-lg4ff.c:
static DEVICE_ATTR(range, S_IRWXU | S_IRWXG | S_IRWXO, lg4ff_range_show, lg4ff_range_store);

drivers/scsi/pm8001/pm8001_ctl.c:
static DEVICE_ATTR(update_fw, S_IRUGO|S_IWUGO,
	pm8001_show_update_fw, pm8001_store_update_fw);

... plus some staging.

So I've left that for a future patch.

Thanks,
Rusty.
