I guess it is older English, used mainly in poetry, but I read it in
works of contemporary fiction as well. As far as I could find, it is still
actually gramatically correct.

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/many_a
But I will change it if you insist on it.

Will move in next version. Lets see what others think about the trigger
name.

Linux is at 100 columns now since commit bdc48fa11e46, commited by
Linus. See
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/scripts/checkpatch.pl?h=v5.9-rc4&id=bdc48fa11e46f867ea4d75fa59ee87a7f48be144
There was actually an article about this on Phoronix, I think.

No, but if the registration failed, I don't see any reason why the
memory should be freed only when the PHY device is destroyed, if the
memory is not used... On failures other code in Linux frees even devm_
allocated resources.

It can be false if whole PAGE_SIZE is written. The code above
using scnprintf only writes the first PAGE_SIZE bytes.
You are right about the buf[-1] case though. len has to be nonzero.
Thanks.

I am not opposed, lets see what Andrew / others think.

The second option looks more reasonable to me, if we move to
drivers/leds/trigger.
