Pull driver core fixes from Greg KH:
 "Here are 3 patches for sysfs issues that have been reported.  Well, 1
  patch really, the first one is reverted as it's not really needed (the
  correct fix is coming in through the different driver subsystems

  But that 1 sysfs fix is needed, so this is still a good thing to pull
  in now"

* The following is done to give a different lockdep key to
* @of->mutex for files which implement mmap. This is a rather
* crude way to avoid false positive lockdep warning around
* mm->mmap_sem - mmap nests @of->mutex under mm->mmap_sem and
* reading /sys/block/sda/trace/act_mask grabs sr_mutex, under
* which mm->mmap_sem nests, while holding @of->mutex. As each
* open file has a separate mutex, it's okay as long as those don't
* happen on the same file. At this point, we can't easily give
* each file a separate locking class. Let's differentiate on
* whether the file has mmap or not for now.
