Apologies for the long delay. I have been extremely out of it lately.
I am should have a signed off by version sent shortly. I looked and
this problem also exists in 2.6.32 but hides because in that case we
directly update the vfs inode so sysfs_chmod works until the vfs inode
is evicted. I will send you a patch for 2.6.32 -stable as well.

Eric
