ecryptfs: clean up attribute mess

It isn't that hard to add simple kset attributes, so don't go through
all the gyrations of creating your own object type and show and store
functions.  Just use the functions that are already present.  This makes
things much simpler.

Note, the version_str string violates the "one value per file" rule for
sysfs.  I suggest changing this now (individual files per type supported
is one suggested way.)

Rafael J. Wysocki [Sat, 12 Jan 2008 19:40:46 +0000]
PM: Acquire device locks on suspend

This patch reorganizes the way suspend and resume notifications are
sent to drivers.  The major changes are that now the PM core acquires
every device semaphore before calling the methods, and calls to
device_add() during suspends will fail, while calls to device_del()
during suspends will block.

It also provides a way to safely remove a suspended device with the
help of the PM core, by using the device_pm_schedule_removal() callback
introduced specifically for this purpose, and updates two drivers (msr
and cpuid) that need to use it.
