Subject: [PATCH 1/3] sysfs directory scaling: rbtree for dirent name lookups

Use an rbtree in sysfs_dirent to speed up file lookup times

Systems with large numbers (tens of thousands and more) of network 
interfaces stress the sysfs code in ways that make the linear search for 
a name match take far too long.  Avoid this by using an rbtree.
