No writing from debugfs please. It allows closed source binary blobs
in user space, rather than proper open solutions.

Don't check the return code for debugfs_XXX API calls. The API is
designed to work even when there are errors.

Don't dump this sort of thing to the kernel log. The only case where
this is currently done in the kernel is for helping to find real bugs
in drivers which have broken DMA handling. There is one driver i know
of where the DMA ring will stop working, and after a timeout the ring
is dumped to see what sort of shape it is in, where the head/tail
pointers are, which descriptors are busy etc.

Does your driver have issues? Or is it production ready?

debugfs is designed such that you don't need all these #ifdef
CONFIG_DEBUG_FS calls. There are stubs for when it is not part of the
kernel. So just makes the calls.

In general #ifdef is not liked in C code. Try to avoid it.
