sysfs: In sysfs_chmod_file lazily propagate the mode change.
Eric W. Biederman [Sat, 21 Nov 2009 00:08:54 +0000 (16:08 -0800)]
Now that sysfs_getattr and sysfs_permission refresh the vfs
inode there is no need to immediatly push the mode change
into the vfs cache.  Reducing the amount of work needed and
simplifying the locking.
