LinuxKPI: enable class dev_groups attributes

Authored by hselasky on Sun, Sep 8, 2:35 PM.



This is necessary for backlight in DRM/KMS drivers:

% sysctl sys.class.backlight
sys.class.backlight.intel_backlight.bl_device.type: raw
sys.class.backlight.intel_backlight.bl_device.max_brightness: 65535
sys.class.backlight.intel_backlight.bl_device.actual_brightness: 5000
sys.class.backlight.intel_backlight.bl_device.brightness: 5000
sys.class.backlight.intel_backlight.bl_device.bl_power: 0

(the corresponding kms-drm patch is just removing the ifdef __linux__'es in linux_backlight.c. well, replacing them with a __FreeBSD_version check once this lands and gets a version number)

I think I've added the create_groups in the right place… it works, anyway :)

Seems fine to me. Does this cause an issue for other users of LinuxKPI?

Found some bugs in the patch. Can you re-test? Also re-loading kernel module?
