Subjectsysfs regression: wrong link counts
Hi,

I cannot boot properly with this commit:
commit 524b6c5b39b931311dfe5a2f5abae2f5c9731676
Author: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com>
Date: Sun Dec 18 20:09:31 2011 -0800

sysfs: Kill nlink counting.


1) network systemd rule doesn't start network
2) sensors complain:
sensors_init: Kernel interface error

ad 2) look at what it does:
/* returns !0 if sysfs filesystem was found, 0 otherwise */
int sensors_init_sysfs(void)
{
struct stat statbuf;
snprintf(sensors_sysfs_mount, NAME_MAX, "%s", "/sys");
if (stat(sensors_sysfs_mount, &statbuf) < 0
|| statbuf.st_nlink <= 2) /* Empty directory */
return 0;
return 1;
}

So this looks like it became a part of ABI we cannot break...

A revert of this commit on the top of today's -next fixes the problem.

thanks,
