    Was there a resolution to this?  Do we want to still add the additional
    verbosity as per the patch or would it be easier to just change the
    device printf to be a little more verbose ?
I have no objection to add two read only sysctl nodes; It may be
better than parsing dmesg if certain program needs those values.  If
Matt thinks it is OK too, I will commit it.
