SubjectSYSFS "errors"
Hi folks,

there are today a number of SYSFS files with read permission set but
can't really be read (tried with normal user and root). To make things
simpler, I wrote a simple ruby script (see below) to check if the file
is world writeable or if it has Read permission but throws an exception
when read (note that I ignore files which return empty buffers since
ruby cries about it).

Here are some results from my desktop PC:

$ ruby sysfs_errors.rb |wc -l
968

# ruby sysfs_errors.rb | wc -l
1602

8<---------------------------- cut here --------------------------------

Dir.glob("/sys/**/*").each do |file|
next if File.directory?(file)

if File.world_writable?(file)
puts "#{file} is world-writable"
end

if File.readable?(file)
begin
File.open(file) { |f|
result = f.readline
}
rescue EOFError
nil
rescue => e
puts e.message
end
end
end

I wonder if that should be sorted out or should we leave it as is ? If
it helps in any way, I have printed below only the filenames (without
path) so I could pipe it through uniq:

act_mask
