I recall what was happened.

Suppose one sample of path is "backend/vif/19/3/state". (we would like to obtain
domid=19)

Initially I would like to use sscanf(path, "backend/%*[a-z]/%hu/%*u") to obtain
the domid from xenstore path in one call.

Unfortunately, unlike userspace sscanf(), the version in linux kernel does not
support '[' so that I would not be able to use "%*[a-z]" in sscanf() in linux
kernel.

Finally, I decided to skip 2 '/' to reach at "19/3/state" and I forgot to
continue using sscanf and implemented my own one :(

With sscanf, I think I still need to skip 2 '/' to skip "backend/<pv device>" in
order to reach at "<domid>/xxxxxxx...":

1. return if the number of '/' in the path is less than 2

2. skip 2 '/' (e.g., backend/vif/)

3. process the rest of patch via sscanf.
