Subject: [PATCH] scsi: fix scsi device attributes registration
Date: Thu, 11 Nov 2021 17:45:51 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Since the sdev_gendev device of a scsi device defines its attributes
using scsi_sdev_attr_groups as the groups field value of its device
type, the execution of device_add() in scsi_sysfs_add_sdev() register
with sysfs only the attributes defined using scsi_sdev_attr_groups. As
a results, the attributes defined by an LLD using the scsi host
sdev_groups attribute groups are never registered with sysfs and not
visible to the users.

Fix this problem by removing scsi_sdev_attr_groups and manually setting
the groups field of a scsi device sdev_gendev to point to the scsi
device gendev_attr_groups. As the first entry of this array of
attribute groups is scsi_sdev_attr_group, using gendev_attr_groups as
the gendev groups result in all defined attributes to be created in
sysfs when device_add() is called.
