Subject[PATCH 3/6] sysfs: Implement sysfs_rename_link
Date
From: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com>

Because of rename ordering problems we occassionally give false
warnings about invalid sysfs operations. So using sysfs_rename
create a sysfs_rename_link function that doesn't need strange
workarounds.
