The problem.  When implementing a network namespace I need to be able
to have multiple network devices with the same name.  Currently this
is a problem for /sys/class/net/*, /sys/devices/virtual/net/*, and
potentially a few other directories of the form /sys/ ... /net/*.

What I want is for each network namespace to have it's own separate
set of directories.  /sys/class/net/, /sys/devices/virtual/net,
and /sys/ ... /net/, and in each set I want to name them
/sys/class/net/, sys/devices/virtual/net/ and /sys/ ... /net/ respectively.

I looked and the VFS actually allows that.  All that is needed is
for /sys/class/net to implement a follow link method to redirect
lookups to the real directory you want.

I am calling the concept of multiple directories all at the same path
in the filesystem shadow directories, the directory entry that
implements the follow_link method the shadow master, and the directories
that are the target of the follow link method shadow directories.

It turns out that just implementing a follow_link method is not
quite enough.  The existince of directories of the form /sys/ ... /net/
can depend on the presence or absence of hotplug hardware, which
means I need a simple race free way to create and destroy these
directories.

To achieve a race free design all shadow directories are created
and managed by sysfs itself.  The upper level code that knows what
shadow directories we need provides just two methods that enable
this:
  current_tag() - that returns a "void *" tag that identifies the context of
	the current process.
  kobject_tag(kobj) - that returns a "void *" tag that identifies the context
	a kobject should be in.
Everything else is left up to sysfs.

For the network namespace current_tag and kobject_tag are essentially
one line functions, and look to remain that.

The work needed in sysfs is more extensive.  At each directory or
symlink creation I need to check if the shadow directory it belongs
in exists and if it does not create it.  Likewise at each symlink
or directory removal I need to check if sysfs directory it is being
removed from is a shadow directory and if this is the last object
in the shadow directory and if so to remove the shadow directory
as well.

I also need a bunch of boiler plate that properly finds, creates, and
removes/frees the shadow directories.

Doing all of that in sysfs isn't bad it is just a bit tedious.  Being race
free is just a manner of ensure we have the directory inode mutex
and the sysfs mutex when we add or remove a shadow directory.  Trying to do
this race free anywhere besides in sysfs is very nasty, and requires unhealthy
amounts of information about how sysfs is implemented.

Currently only directories which hold kobjects, and
symlinks are supported.  There is not enough information
in the current file attribute interfaces to give us anything
to discriminate on which makes it useless, and there are
not potential users which makes it an uniteresting problem
to solve.
