Re: [PATCH] efivars update

> A while back I posted a patch that moved the EFI variable services driver (efivars) to a new drivers/efi directory.  As EFI driver are typically platform/architecturally independent, it seems like a good idea to collect them in a common place.  Pat suggested the efivars driver should be converted to use sysfs rather than proc....so here you go.  As such, this patch does several things:

Hey, neat. :) 

Would you mind posting the output of tree(1) of the sysfs hierarchy of one 
of the sytems? 

> Note, this patch relies upon the kobject_set_name() call recently introduced by Pat Mochel in order to export the long gvariable name-guid combinations needed to accurately identify variables of the same name.  

That patch is below. I'll be sending it to Linus once he gets back from
vacation, unless anyone has any serious objections to it. Note that it
completely removes any limitation on the length of a kobject (and sysfs
directory) name.

# This is a BitKeeper generated patch for the following project:
# Project Name: Linux kernel tree
# This patch format is intended for GNU patch command version 2.5 or higher.
# This patch includes the following deltas:
#	           ChangeSet	1.1163  -> 1.1166 
#	include/linux/kobject.h	1.23    -> 1.24   
#	      fs/sysfs/dir.c	1.10    -> 1.11   
#	       lib/kobject.c	1.27    -> 1.28   
#
# The following is the BitKeeper ChangeSet Log
# --------------------------------------------
# 03/08/29	mochel@osdl.org	1.1164
# [kobject] Support unlimited name lengths.
# 
# Add ->k_name pointer which points to the name for a kobject. By default, this
# points to ->name (the static name array). 
#  
# Users of kobjects may use the helper function kobject_set_name() (and are 
# encouraged to do so in all cases). This function will determined whether or
# not the name is short enough to fit in ->name. If so, great. 
# 
# Otherwise, a dyanamic string is allocated and the name is stored there. 
# ->k_name will point to that, and will be freed when the kobject is released. 
# 
# kobject_set_name() may take a format string, like:
# 
# 	kobject_set_name(kobj,"%s%d",base_name,id); 
# 
# and will behave as expected (will put in ->name, unless it's too long, in 
# which case a new string will be allocated and it will be stored in there). 
# --------------------------------------------
# 03/08/29	mochel@osdl.org	1.1166
# [sysfs] Use kobject_name() when creating directories for kobjects.
# --------------------------------------------
