I think we have a misunderstanding, with this part of the patch set I
am not trying to propose a generic ABI that would be useful for any
other driver but this one. Hence the lack of concern for different
hardware paths (it's not going to change for this device) and device
specific codes instead of generic strings. I can see how my choice of
generic name such as "reset_reason" might suggest that, so I apologize
for any confusion I might have caused. If said generic name is
unacceptable I can change it to "rave_reset_reason" or something
similar and if that is undesirable as well I am happy to drop this
part of the patch and re-visit this later.

Short answer: I don't know, since this is as much information that ICD
for that device gave me.

Long answer:  It probably can be discerned from the source code of the
firmware/schematic as well as by bothering the right people, but since
I get a feeling that this attribute is not really desirable in its
current from, I'll punt doing that.

Yep, same comment for me as well :-)

They already are there. See rave_sp_debugfs_create() where those
helper functions are being used.
