I am just realizing that my indent may have been misinterpreted. All I
was saying was that it wasn't up to the hwmon subsystem to _standardize_
on power up/down sysfs attributes. I didn't mean to object against such
attributes being added to a hwmon device. So feel free to add back the
power attribute you just removed if it makes your life easier.

Sorry for the confusion.
