sysfs: move sysfs file poll implementation to sysfs_open_dirent
Sysfs file poll implementation is scattered over sysfs and kobject. Event numbering is done in sysfs_dirent but wait itself is done on kobject. This not only unecessarily bloats both kobject and sysfs_dirent but is also buggy - if a sysfs_dirent is removed while there still are pollers, the associaton betwen the kobject and sysfs_dirent breaks and kobject may be freed with the pollers still sleeping on it. This patch moves whole poll implementation into sysfs_open_dirent. Each time a sysfs_open_dirent is created, event number restarts from 1 and pollers sleep on sysfs_open_dirent. As event sequence number is meaningless without any open file and pollers should have open file and thus sysfs_open_dirent, this ephemeral event counting works and is a saner implementation. This patch fixes the dnagling sleepers bug and reduces the sizes of kobject and sysfs_dirent by one pointer.
