    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,
