Still, this would definitely have to be dynamically-generated at lookup time: one kobject/dentry for every bad block throughout the lifetime of the /sys mountpoint would be madness.

Sorry, but I don't think that this makes much sense.
Where does that silly 4k limit come from, anyway? debugfs does much better. So provide a symlink to the "real" list which lives somewhere else?
