[PATCH 0/13] sysfs lazification.

From: Eric W. Biederman
Date: Tue Nov 03 2009 - 06:54:26 EST

The sysfs code updates the vfs caches immediately when the sysfs data
structures change causing a lot of unnecessary complications. The
following patchset untangles that beast. Allowing for simpler
more straight forward code, the removal of a hack from the vfs
to support sysfs, and human comprehensible locking on sysfs.

Most of these patches have already been reviewed and acked from the
last time I had time to work on sysfs.

In net the patches look like:
