Subject: [PATCH 15/22] sysfs: implement sysfs_dirent based link interface

sysfs_add_link() takes parent sd, name, mode and the target sd and
creates a link accordingly.  Currently, sysfs links can only point to
directories but this limitiation is artificial to avoid inflating the
sysfs_dirent structure by one pointer with future changes and can be
easily removed.

Kobject based sysfs_create_link() is reimplemented using
sysfs_add_link().

This patch doesn't introduce any behavior change to the original API.
