Subject: [PATCH 5.8 26/70] efivarfs: Replace invalid slashes with exclamation marks in dentries.

From: Michael Schaller <misch@...gle.com>

commit 336af6a4686d885a067ecea8c3c3dd129ba4fc75 upstream.

Without this patch efivarfs_alloc_dentry creates dentries with slashes in
their name if the respective EFI variable has slashes in its name. This in
turn causes EIO on getdents64, which prevents a complete directory listing
of /sys/firmware/efi/efivars/.

This patch replaces the invalid shlashes with exclamation marks like
kobject_set_name_vargs does for /sys/firmware/efi/vars/ to have consistently
named dentries under /sys/firmware/efi/vars/ and /sys/firmware/efi/efivars/.
