    Subject[PATCHSET] Sysfs cleanups from Eric W. Biederman
    Hello, all.

    This is subset of Eric W. Biederman's "Sysfs cleanups & tagged
    directory support" patchset[1] with the following modifications.

    * fix-i_mutex-locking-in-sysfs_get_dentry patch is added at the top
    and #14-Don_t-use-lookup_one_len_kern and
    #15-vfs-Remove-lookup_one_len_kern are dropped. This is because #14
    contained had a bug where it might created dentry/inode for an
    already deleted sysfs_dirent. I think it's benefitial to keep
    single lookup path.

    * Rewrote simplify-sysfs_get_dentry patch and
    #09-Move-sysfs_get_dentry-below-__sysfs_get_dentry and
    #10-Rewrite-sysfs_get_dentry-in-terms-of-__sysfs_get_dentry are
    omitted as __sysfs_get_dentry() isn't used by anyone.

    * #16, 19-25 are omitted as it isn't clear yet how the tagged entry
    support will end up.

    * readdir simplification fixed.

    * sysfs_mutex double locking fixed.

    The patchset is on top of the current -gregkh.
