Subject[PATCH 5/6] sysfs: Implement sysfs_delete_link
Date
From: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com>

When removing a symlink sysfs_remove_link does not provide
enough information to figure out which tagged directory the symlink
falls in. So I need sysfs_delete_link which is passed the target
of the symlink to delete.

sysfs_rename_link is updated to call sysfs_delete_link instead
of sysfs_remove_link as we have all of the information necessary
and the callers are interesting.

Both of these functions now have enough information to find a symlink
in a tagged directory. The only restriction is that they must be called
before the target kobject is renamed or deleted. If they are called
later I loose track of which tag the target kobject was marked with
and can no longer find the old symlink to remove it.

This patch was split from an earlier patch.
