Subject[PATCH 17/22] sysfs: s/sysfs_rename_mutex/sysfs_op_mutex/ and protect all tree modifying ops
Date
From
Rename sysfs_rename_mutex to sysfs_op_mutex and protect operations
which modify tree with it. ie.

sysfs_op_mutex : above i_mutexes in the lock hierarchy and
guarantees exclusion against all tree
modifications.

sysfs_mutex : under i_mutexes in the lock hierarchy and protects
vfs tree walking from actual tree modification.

So, when one wants to modify tree structure, it should first grab
sysfs_op_mutex mutex, at which point tree structure is guaranteed to
not change beneath it, and then sysfs_mutex when it actually modifies
the tree.

This widened op mutex will be used to make using symlinks easier and
the extended mutex coverage won't add any noticeable contention (only
one extra locking and unlocking around sysfs_mutex in add/remove
paths), not that it would matter even if it actually does.
