Subject: [PATCH 06/15] Introduce sysfs_sd_setattr and fix sysfs_chmod


Currently sysfs_chmod calls sys_setattr which in turn calls
inode_change_ok which checks to see if it is ok for the current user
space process to change tha attributes. Since sysfs_chmod_file has
only kernel mode clients denying them permission if user space is the
problem is completely inappropriate.

Therefore factor out sysfs_sd_setattr which does not call
inode_change_ok and modify sysfs_chmod_file to call it.

In addition setting victim_sd->s_mode explicitly in sysfs_chmod_file
is redundant so remove that as well.

Thanks to Tejun Heo <htejun@...il.com>, and
Daniel Lezcano <dlezcano@...ibm.com> for working on this
and spotting this case.
