Reading /sys/class/leds/<led>/trigger returns all available LED triggers.
However, the size of this file is limited to PAGE_SIZE because of the
limitation for sysfs attribute.

Enabling LED CPU trigger on systems with thousands of CPUs easily hits
PAGE_SIZE limit, and makes it impossible to see all available LED triggers
and which trigger is currently activated.

This patch converts /sys/class/leds/<led>/trigger to bin attribute and
removes the PAGE_SIZE limitation.

The first version of this seris provided the new api that follows the
"one value per file" rule of sysfs. This second version dropped it because
there have been a number of problems and it turns out that the new api
should be submitted separately.

* v2
- Update commit message
- Drop patches for new api

Reading /sys/class/leds/<led>/trigger returns all available LED triggers.
However, the size of this file is limited to PAGE_SIZE because of the
limitation for sysfs attribute.

Enabling LED CPU trigger on systems with thousands of CPUs easily hits
PAGE_SIZE limit, and makes it impossible to see all available LED triggers
and which trigger is currently activated.

We work around it here by converting /sys/class/leds/<led>/trigger to
binary attribute, which is not limited by length. This is _not_ good
design, do not copy it.

Hi Akinobu,

Please bump patch version each time you send an update
of the patch with the same subject.

Best regards,

No.

Your patch is good, it just needs adding comment:
 /* It was stupid to create 10000 cpu triggers, but we are
stuck with it now. Don't make that mistake again. We work around it here by creating binary
attribute, which is not limited by length. This is _not_ good design, do not copy it. */

Yes, sorry, I missed that "kernel" directory, that's a non-starter, use
the class directory as that is what it is for here.

I think that /sys/class/leds/triggers would better reflect the reality.
After all LED Trigger core belongs to LED subsystem.

I see.

How about creating one file or directory for each led-trigger in
/sys/kernel/led-triggers directory?

e.g.

$ ls /sys/kernel/led-triggers
audio-micmute                              ide-disk        phy0assoc
audio-mute                                 kbd-altgrlock   phy0radio
...
hidpp_battery_3-full                       panic

No, procfs files are ONLY for process-related things.  Don't keep the
insanity of this file format by just moving it out of sysfs and into
procfs :)

I'd propose introducing a new procfs file (/proc/led-triggers) and new
/sys/class/leds/<led>/current-trigger api.

Reading /proc/led-triggers file shows all available triggers.
This violates "one value per file", but it's a procfs file.

The /sys/class/leds/<led>/current-trigger is almost identical to
/sys/class/leds/<led>/trigger.  The only difference is that
'current-trigger' only shows the current trigger name.
This file follows the "one value per file" rule of sysfs.

Well, I honestly don't remember writing that email, but it was 5 months
and many thousands of emails ago :)

Also, you all didn't document the heck out of this.  So no, I really do
not want to see this patch accepted as-is.

Let's see the patch that actually implements what I suggested first :)

In the message [0] you pledged to give us exception for that, provided
it will be properly documented in the code. I suppose you now object
because the patch does not meet that condition.

Provided that will be fixed, can we count on your ack for the
implementation of the solution you proposed? :-)

But this is NOT a binary file.  A sysfs binary file is used for when the
kernel passes data to or from hardware without any parsing of the data
by the kernel.

You are not doing that here, you are abusing the "one value per file"
rule of sysfs so much that you are forced to work around the limitation
it put in place on purpose to keep you from doing stuff like this.

Please fix this "correctly" by creating a new api that works properly
and just live with the fact that this file will never work correctly and
move everyone to use the new api instead.

Don't keep on abusing the interface by workarounds like this, it is not
ok.

thanks,

greg k-h

Nothing obviously wrong from a quick look...

Acked-by: Pavel Machek <pavel@ucw.cz>

Thanks a lot for doing this!

I believe we should cc Greg here.

BTW if you care about cpuled trigger... it would be cool to turn it into one trigger and pass
a cpu number as a parameter. It is good to see this limit fixed, but real solution is to
register one trigger per driver.

Best regards,
										Pavel

Hi Akinobu,

Thank you for the patch.

I have one nit below but in general it looks good to me.
I've tested it with 2000 mtd triggers (~14kB file size)
and it worked flawlessly.

Still, I would like to have ack from Greg for it.

Adding Greg on Cc.

Here we know len is 0 so we can pass just buf and size.

* [PATCH] leds: remove PAGE_SIZE limit of /sys/class/leds/<led>/trigger

Reading /sys/class/leds/<led>/trigger returns all available LED triggers.
However, the size of this file is limited to PAGE_SIZE because of the
limitation for sysfs attribute.

Enabling LED CPU trigger on systems with thousands of CPUs easily hits
PAGE_SIZE limit, and makes it impossible to see all available LED triggers
and which trigger is currently activated.

This converts /sys/class/leds/<led>/trigger to bin attribute and removes
the PAGE_SIZE limitation.
