Since sound/aoa/soundbus/sysfs is small, a solution would be
to merge sound/aoa/soundbus/sysfs.c and sound/aoa/soundus/core.c.
Moreover all 172 other usages of the ATTRIBUTE_GROUPS macro
define the struct attribute *xxx_attrs[] in the same file
they assign the .dev_groups field.

I'm not sure about this change as it seems way more important than
adding a comment line as you suggested.

Should I send a patch merging these two files?
