Ok... the corrected patch is appended. But I see more work to be done here
which if required can be done as a patch over this one which is not related
to sysfs symlinks. Please see the next mail.

Thanks
Maneesh



o The symlinks code in sysfs doesnot point to the correct target kobject
whenever target kobject is renamed and suffers from dangling symlinks
if target kobject is removed.

o The following patch implements ->readlink and ->follow_link operations
for sysfs instead of using the page_symlink_inode_operations.
The pointer to target kobject is saved in the link dentry's d_fsdata field.
The target path is generated everytime we do ->readlink and ->follow_link.
This results in generating the correct target path during readlink and
follow_link operations inspite of renamed target kobject.

o This also pins the target kobject during link creation and the ref. is
released when the link is removed.

o Apart from being correct this patch also saves some memory by not pinning
a whole page for saving the target information.

o Used a rw_semaphor sysfs_rename_sem to avoid clashing with renaming of
ancestors while the target path is generated.

o Used dcache_lock in fs/sysfs/sysfs.h:sysfs_get_kobject() because of using
d_drop() while removing dentries.
