Hi Greg,

Thanks,  will fix comment indentation, seen during sys-executor running:

We have only one instance , In logs below warning also came:

WARNING: CPU: 4 kernel/msm-4.14/fs/kernfs/dir.c:494 kernfs_get+0x64/0x88

which indicated parent is in put path.

during code review, I have found race between kernfs parent put call and
child get call.
