sysfs: only allow one scheduled removal callback per kobj
The only way for a sysfs attribute to remove itself (without deadlock) is to use the sysfs_schedule_callback() interface. Vegard Nossum discovered that a poorly written sysfs ->store callback can repeatedly schedule remove callbacks on the same device over and over, e.g. $ while true ; do echo 1 > /sys/devices/.../remove ; done If the 'remove' attribute uses the sysfs_schedule_callback API and also does not protect itself from concurrent accesses, its callback handler will be called multiple times, and will eventually attempt to perform operations on a freed kobject, leading to many problems. Instead of requiring all callers of sysfs_schedule_callback to implement their own synchronization, provide the protection in the infrastructure. Now, sysfs_schedule_callback will only allow one scheduled callback per kobject. On subsequent calls with the same kobject, return -EAGAIN. This is a short term fix. The long term fix is to allow sysfs attributes to remove themselves directly, without any of this callback hokey pokey.
