Revert "kernfs: fix memleak in kernel_ops_readdir()" (2019-08-08 08:39:35 +0200)

Driver core fixes for 5.3-rc4

Here are 2 small fixes for some driver core issues that have been
reported. There is also a kernfs "fix" here, which was then reverted
because it was found to cause problems in linux-next.

The driver core fixes both resolve reported issues, one with gpioint
stuff that showed up in 5.3-rc1, and the other finally (and hopefully)
resolves a very long standing race when removing glue directories. It's
nice to get that issue finally resolved and the developers involved
should be applauded for the persistence it took to get this patch
finally accepted.

All of these have been in linux-next for a while with no reported
issues. Well, the one reported issue, hence the revert :)
