    sysfs: use transient write buffer · 8ef445f0
    Tejun Heo authored
    There isn't much to be gained by keeping around kernel buffer while a
    file is open especially as the read path planned to be converted to
    use seq_file and won't use the buffer.  This patch makes
    sysfs_write_file() use per-write transient buffer instead of
    This simplifies the write path, enables removing sysfs_open_file->page
    once read path is updated and will help merging bin file write path
    which already requires the use of a transient buffer due to a locking
    order issue.
    As the function comments of flush_write_buffer() and
    sysfs_write_buffer() are being updated anyway, reformat them so that
    they're more conventional.
    v2: Use min_t() instead of min() in sysfs_write_file() to avoid build
        warning on arm.  Reported by build test robot.
