String is tightly coupled with the FLAG, right?
Instead user need to take care of making sure to return proper string,
and don't mis-match the string, I think having function is easier.
Vendor driver should decide the type of device they want to expose and
set the flag, using this function vendor driver would return string
which is based on flag they set.
