Hi Andrew,

I have fixed the rejects and re-diffed the following patch. There are no code
changes as such.


Thanks
Maneesh

- Rediffed the patch for 2.6.6-mm3 to fix rejects in the latest changes
  in sysfs code.

o The symlinks code in sysfs doesnot point to the correct target kobject
  whenever target kobject is renamed and suffers from dangling symlinks
  if target kobject is removed.

o The following patch implements ->readlink and ->follow_link operations 
  for sysfs instead of using the page_symlink_inode_operations. 
  The pointer to target kobject is saved in the link dentry's d_fsdata field. 
  The target path is generated everytime we do ->readlink and ->follow_link. 
  This results in generating the correct target path during readlink and 
  follow_link operations inspite of renamed target kobject. 

o This also pins the target kobject during link creation and the ref. is
  released when the link is removed. 

o Apart from being correct this patch also saves some memory by not pinning
  a whole page for saving the target information.

o Used a rw_semaphor sysfs_rename_sem to avoid clashing with renaming of 
  ancestors while the target path is generated. 

o Used dcache_lock in fs/sysfs/sysfs.h:sysfs_get_kobject() because of using
  d_drop() while removing dentries.

ACK.  Let's merge that puppy (and my vote is to merge it upstream) and move
on to the rest of patchset.

Applied to my trees, thanks.  I'll send this to Linus in a day or so.
