Subject[PATCH net-next 05/10] sysfs: add sysfs_change_owner()
Date
Add a helper to change the owner of sysfs objects.
The ownership of a sysfs object is determined based on the ownership of
the corresponding kobject, i.e. only if the ownership of a kobject is
changed will this function change the ownership of the corresponding
sysfs entry.
This function will be used to correctly account for kobject ownership
changes, e.g. when moving network devices between network namespaces.
