Subject: [PATCH 3/8] sysfs: Implement sysfs_delete_link and sysfs_rename_link


When removing a symlink sysfs_remove_link does not provide
enough information to figure out which tagged directory the symlink
falls in.  So I need sysfs_delete_link which is passed the target
of the symlink to delete.

Further half the time when we are removing a symlink the code is
actually renaming the symlink but not doing so explicitly because
we don't have a symlink rename method. So I have added sysfs_rename_link
as well.

Both of these functions now have enough information to find a symlink
in a tagged directory.  The only restriction is that they must be called
before the target kobject is renamed or deleted.  If they are called
later I loose track of which tag the target kobject was marked with
and can no longer find the old symlink to remove it.
