Ok. Here is my respun patchset. I have not changed which files
we remove in a directory when we remove a non-empty directory.
Leaving that issue to be addressed another time.

To accommodate that I have respun two patches:

patch 4 sysfs: Normalize removing sysfs directories.
patch 15 sysfs: Kill sysfs_addrm_start and sysfs_addrm_finish

Killing addrm is only changed to track the previous differences.
