Subject: Re: [PATCH v3] f2fs: add symbolic link to kobject in sysfs

> No Documentation/ABI/ entry for your new sysfs file/link?

This is for adding a symbolic link to a pre-existed
/sys/fs/f2fs/<disk> directory and it means /sys/fs/f2fs/<mount> points
to /sys/fs/f2fs/<disk>. I already added the description of this in
Documentation/filesystems/f2fs.rst.

Some system daemons in Android access with the pre-defined sysfs entry
name in the json file. So whenever the project changes and the
partition layout is changed, we have to follow up the changes and
modify /sys/fs/f2fs/<disk> name in the json file accordingly.

This will help them access all the f2fs sysfs entries consistently
without requiring to know those changes.

This is for the daemon to change the mode of only F2FS with the power
hint of Android.
