No, it should go the other way, my fix is better. It would not require sysfs
to have its own version of setattr. What I do like about Maneesh's fix is the
handling of other inode attributes besides mode flags, however that is a
detail, let's get the structural elements right first.

The revised patch fixes the vanishing permissions bug and kills the configfs
bogon that made my first attempt subtly wrong (changed permissions for all
attribute files instead of just the chmoded one).
