> Input/output error - /sys/devices/cpu/power/autosuspend_delay_ms

The issue with this file is, if the power.use_autosuspend flag is not
set for the device, then it can't be read or written to. This flag
changes dynamically with the system state
(__pm_runtime_use_autosuspend() can change it), so we can't just not
show the file if the flag is not set properly, sorry.

So the "error" is correct here, as is the 0644 file value.

Take that sysfs file out of your results, reduces it to a mere handful
of files:

> No such device - /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:03.0/0000:02:00.0/graphics/fb0/bl_curve

I don't really have a framebuffer in this box either it seems, so
reading this file correctly returns -ENODEV.

SCSI fun, go poke the SCSI developers about these files, I know nothing
about them, nor do I really want to :)

> No such device - /sys/devices/system/edac/mc/mc0/sdram_scrub_rate

Odd, go ask the edac developers

> Input/output error - /sys/devices/system/memory/soft_offline_page
> Input/output error - /sys/devices/system/memory/hard_offline_page

These both should be mode 0400, not 0644, they have no 'show' attribute,
that's a bug, care to make up a patch that I can take? Or I can, let me
know.

> Invalid argument - /sys/devices/virtual/net/lo/speed

Ask the network developers, odds are, the loopback device doesn't really
have a speed :)

Hm, these show up for virtual block devices as well, maybe they aren't
scsi specific, but rather block specific, go poke the block developers
then.

So the list is much more reasonable now, with at least 2 bugs found,
nice.

thanks,
