sysfs: Allow sysfs_notify_dirent to be called from interrupt context.



sysfs_notify_dirent is a simple atomic operation that can be used to
alert user-space that new data can be read from a sysfs attribute.

Unfortunately it cannot currently be called from non-process context
because of its use of spin_lock which is sometimes taken with
interrupts enabled.

So change all lockers of sysfs_open_dirent_lock to disable interrupts,
thus making sysfs_notify_dirent safe to be called from non-process
context (as drivers/md does in md_safemode_timeout).

sysfs_get_open_dirent is (documented as being) only called from
process context, so it uses spin_lock_irq.  Other places
use spin_lock_irqsave.

The usage for sysfs_notify_dirent in md_safemode_timeout was
introduced in 2.6.28, so this patch is suitable for that and more
recent kernels.
