[PATCH 09/14] sysfs: Move all of sysfs_move_dir under sysfs_mutex

This patch modifies sysfs_move_dir to perform all of it's
operations under the sysfs_mutex.  By looking for conflicts
using sysfs_find_dirent we accidentally moving something
onto a name that already exists but just not in the dcache
right now.

Two s_dentry usages are killed.

And it has probably become unnecessary to grab i_mutex at
all but I'm not brave enough to do that just yet.
