Subject[PATCH 05/22] sysfs: implement sysfs_find_child()
Date
From
Implement sysfs_find_child() which finds a child of a sysfs_dirent by
name. This function does not grab reference of the found child. The
caller is supposed to have reference if the child exists. This
function is useful for callers which own the sysfs_dirent to be looked
up but don't wanna keep a pointer to it.
