Subject[patch 07/28] sysfs: fix hardlink count on device_move
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Peter Oberparleiter <oberpar@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

commit 0f58b44582001c8bcdb75f36cf85ebbe5170e959 upstream.

Update directory hardlink count when moving kobjects to a new parent.
Fixes the following problem which occurs when several devices are
moved to the same parent and then unregistered:

> ls -laF /sys/devices/css0/defunct/
> total 0
> drwxr-xr-x 4294967295 root root 0 2009-07-14 17:02 ./
> drwxr-xr-x 114 root root 0 2009-07-14 17:02 ../
> drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 2009-07-14 17:01 power/
> -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4096 2009-07-14 17:01 uevent
