Hi Vivek,

We can make description file with tunable_notifier_chain_register 4th argument.
If developer sets 4th argument, tunable_notifier_chain_register makes
/sys/kernel/debug/<name>/description file. Admin can get information from the
description file.

+/**
+ *	tunable_notifier_chain_register - Add notifier to an tunable notifier chain
+ *	@nh: Pointer to head of the tunable notifier chain
+ *	@n: New entry in notifier chain
+ *	@name: Pointer to the name of the new notifier entry
+ *	@desc: Pointer to the description of new entry
+ *
+ *	Adds a notifier to an tunable notifier chain and makes control dir.
+ *
+ *	Returns zero on success or %-ENODEV on failure.
+ */

Thanks,
