Looks complete.

There is still a few things in flight:
- error handling in config_*_init_type_name(): has rather low priority in my
TODO list, will come back to it probably in a few weeks.
- silencing lockdep: hope to get something in the next few days.
- a small locking cleanup in configfs_rmdir(): will do at the same time as
lockdep stuff.
