Ummm... Null @dir_sd handling is being removed, which could be fine
but please do it in a separate patch or at least mention it in the
patch description. Also, I'm quite uncomfortable with these things
being done in non-atomic manner. It can be made to work but things
like this can lead to subtle race conditions and with the kind of
layering we put on top of sysfs (kobject, driver model, driver
midlayers and so on), it isn't all that easy to verify what's going
on, so NACK for this one.

Thanks.
