[PATCH] sysfs: reinstate exclusion between method calls and attribute unregistration
This patch (as869) reinstates the mutual exclusion between sysfs attribute method calls and attribute unregistration. The previously-reported deadlocks have been fixed, and this exclusion is by far the simplest way to avoid races during driver unbinding. The check for orphaned read-buffers has been moved down slightly, so that the remainder of a partially-read buffer will still be available to userspace even after the attribute has been unregistered.
