Subject: [PATCH 04/15] sysfs: Simplify sysfs_chmod_file semantics

From: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@...ssion.com>

Currently every caller of sysfs_chmod_file happens at either
file creation time to set a non-default mode or in response
to a specific user requested space change in policy.  Making
timestamps of when the chmod happens and notification of
a file changing mode uninteresting.

Remove the unnecessary time stamp and filesystem change
notification, and removes the last of the explicit inotify
and donitfy support from sysfs.
