Subject[PATCH 16/26] sysfs: In sysfs_chmod_file lazily propagate the mode change.
From: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com>

Now that sysfs_getattr and sysfs_permission refresh the vfs
inode there is no need to immediatly push the mode change
into the vfs cache. Reducing the amount of work needed and
simplifying the locking.
