Subject: [PATCH 11/15] sysfs: Gut sysfs_addrm_start and sysfs_addrm_finish

From: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@...well.aristanetworks.com>

With lazy inode updates and dentry operations bringing everything
into sync on demand there is no longer any need to immediately
update the vfs or grab i_mutex to protect those updates as we
make changes to sysfs.
