I added full name of the abbreviation.


L2P (logical to physical) map of UFS to host DRAM. The driver uses HPB read command
     ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
by piggybacking physical page number for bypassing FTL (flash translation layer)

"ufsf" is stands for ufs feature. I wiil add comments for the data structure.

I am not rejecting your comment. But I added kobject for distinguishing 
between other attributes and attributes related to HPB feature.
If you think it's pointless, I'll fix it.

I will move the loop to ufshcd_hpb_configure().

Yes, I agree the above wait_event_timeout() call can be eliminated.
I will change these functions.

Moving other stuffs in the loop is good idea, but removing attributes is problem.
To avoid adding new kobject, I will try to use sysfs_merge_group() 
for adding attributes. To delete merged attributes, sysfs_unmerge_group() 
should be called. But sysfs_remove_groups() is called before calling ufshcd_slave_destroy().

The wait_event_timeout() call will be removed, so it will be changed.
