No form of documentation for what these debugfs files are for?  I know
you don't normally have to do this, but all you are doing here is
creating a "test" driver, with testing interfaces from userspace to the
kernel.  So how is anyone supposed to know how to use them?

These are complex debugfs files you are writing to, so a bit of a hint
as to what they are going to be doing would be nice, don't you think?

thanks,
