This is a nonstandard path that does not match the attribute path (or
any other convention followed under ABI/).

I suggest you rename it

I think you should rename the attribute "bus_frequency" and name the
attribute group "dln2". That way the attribute will show up as


Then the "What:" field should read

What: /sys/class/i2c-adapter/<device>/dln2/bus_frequency

I'd reword this "Set the frequency...".

Please also describe under what circumstances this may fail, that is,
when setting a frequency less than or greater than the min or max
frequencies reported by the device.

Perhaps you should even consider exporting those two values?
