Subject[PATCH 0/5] sysfs backing store (Re-splitted)
Hello Andrew,

As per Viro's suggestions I have re-splitted the sysfs backing store
patch set. This splitting is more meaningful and it should make the
long pending review more interesting. There are no significant changes
in the code except some cosmetic code re-arrangement and a couple of
real changes in the error paths.

1) In fs/sysfs/dir.c:create_dir(), dput() was missing if we fail in

2) Check for kmalloc() return value in fs/sysfs/symlink.c:sysfs_add_link().

I hope Viro will do the review soon. In the mean time I thought it will be
nice if you could _replace_ the sysfs patches (six patches with names
sysfs-leaves-xxx.patch) with the following patches (mailed separately).
I will update them again based on the comments I get.
