debugfs_initialized() was introduced in commit c0f92ba99 back in 
2.6.30-rc1. It was intended as a helper, not as a gatekeeper, which is 
why one doesn't see it used. Given that my use in this proposed patch is 
straightforward, I'm not seeing the need here. I had just seen some 
other code that used it, and copied the model.

Unless someone comes along to say, yes, use it, I'll not.
