    Sounds like after the locking in the current patches fixed, this
    should perhaps be implemented and compared for locking complexity
    and memory consumption.

    Would a smaller replacement for the sysfs_dirent structure to link
    just leaf nodes to kobject be close to what infrastructural
    modifications you are talking about ?
