Subject[PATCH 14/25] sysfs: Don't use lookup_one_len_kern
Date

Upon inspection it appears that there is no looking of the
inode mutex in lookup_one_len_kern and we aren't calling
it with the inode mutex and that is wrong.

So this patch rolls our own dcache insertion function that
does exactly what we need it to do. As it turns out this
is pretty trivial to do and it makes the code easier to
audit.
