Subject[PATCH 36/46] sysfs: use ilookup5() instead of ilookup5_nowait()
Date
From: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org>

As inode creation is protected by sysfs_mutex, ilookup5_nowait()
always either fails to find at all or finds one which is fully
initialized, so using ilookup5_nowait() or ilookup5() doesn't make any
difference. Switch to ilookup5() as it's planned to be removed. This
change also makes lookup return value handling a bit simpler.

This change was suggested by Al Viro.
