[lm-sensors] [patch] hwmon: w83781d - check return code of device_create_file

Add 2 attr-file groups (for base and model-specific attrs respectively),
create the base group with single call to sysfs_create_group,
check the return code on individual calls to device_create_file for each
of the model-specific attr-files.

This is compile-tested only, needs validation on hardware, or
very thorough inspection.

theyre gone. (the file_<foo> macros)

There are several distasteful macro-function-decl-expansions still there :


store_in_reg(MIN, min);
store_in_reg(MAX, max);

and also a compound one:  This one in particular is crying for a 
2D-callback implementation.
Ill do it (its my axe, Ill grind it some more ;-), IFF you find a tester 
for it.
Anyway, thats not for 19.

#define sysfs_in_offsets(offset) \
sysfs_in_offset(offset); \
sysfs_in_reg_offset(min, offset); \
sysfs_in_reg_offset(max, offset);


These all addressed :
