mm/thp: use conventional format for boolean attributes
Ben Hutchings [Thu, 14 Apr 2011 22:22:21 +0000 (15:22 -0700)]
The conventional format for boolean attributes in sysfs is numeric ("0" or
"1" followed by new-line).  Any boolean attribute can then be read and
written using a generic function.  Using the strings "yes [no]", "[yes]
no" (read), "yes" and "no" (write) will frustrate this.
