2008-07-21sysfs-rules.txt: reword API stability statementNathan Lynch1-3/+2
The first paragraph of this document implies that user space developers shouldn't use sysfs at all, but then it goes on to describe rules that developers should follow when accessing sysfs. Not only is this somewhat self-contradictory, it has been shown to discourage developers from using established sysfs interfaces. A note of caution is more appropriate than a blanket "sysfs will never be stable" assertion.
