Driver core: fix race in sysfs between sysfs_remove_file() and read()/write()
This patch prevents a race between IO and removing a file from sysfs. It introduces a list of sysfs_buffers associated with a file at the inode. Upon removal of a file the list is walked and the buffers marked orphaned. IO to orphaned buffers fails with -ENODEV. The driver can safely free associated data structures or be unloaded.
