Subject: [PATCH 03/15] sysfs: Use dentry_ops instead of directly playing with the dcache

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

Calling d_drop unconditionally when a sysfs_dirent is deleted has
the potential to leak mounts, so instead implement dentry delete
and revalidate operations that cause sysfs dentries to be removed
at the appropriate time.
