Subject[PATCH 00/23] gpio: sysfs: fixes and clean ups
These patches fix a number of issues with the gpio sysfs interface,

- fix memory leaks and crashes on device hotplug
- straighten out the convoluted locking
- reduce sysfs-interface latencies through more fine-grained locking
- more clearly separate the sysfs-interface implementation from gpiolib

The first patch is marked for stable and could go into 4.1.

Unfortunately we can't just kill the gpio sysfs interface, but these
patches will make it more manageable and should allow us to implement a
new user-space interface while maintaining the old one (for a while at
least) without losing our sanity.

Note that there is still a race between chip remove and gpiod_request (and
therefore sysfs export), which needs to be fixed separately (for instance as
part of a generic solution to chip hotplugging).
