Subject[PATCH 2/3] proc: sysctl: add _proc_do_string helper
Date
From: Sam Vilain <sam.vilain@catalyst.net.nz>

The logic in proc_do_string is worth re-using without passing in a
ctl_table structure (say, we want to calculate a pointer and pass that
in instead); pass in the two fields it uses from that structure
as explicit arguments.
