Subject[RFC 4/6] sysfs-symlink.patch


o This patch creates symlink kobject. We don't create the symlink in sysfs
when sysfs_create_symlink() is called but just allocates one kobject to act
as symlink. Again this code should be part of kobject code. But to keep the
interfaces same it is in sysfs code.
