Subject[RESEND PATCH v7 4/8] kernfs: Replace global kernfs_open_node_lock with hashed spinlocks.
Date
In current kernfs design a single spinlock, kernfs_open_node_lock, protects
the kernfs_node->attr.open i.e kernfs_open_node instances corresponding to
a sysfs attribute. So separate tasks, which are opening or closing separate
sysfs files, can contend on this spinlock. The contention is more apparent
in large scale systems with few hundred CPUs where most of the CPUs have
running tasks that are opening, accessing or closing sysfs files at any
point of time.

Using hashed spinlocks in place of a single global spinlock, can reduce
contention around global spinlock and hence provide better scalability.
Moreover as these hashed spinlocks are not part of kernfs_node objects we
will not see any singnificant change in memory utilization of kernfs based
file systems like sysfs, cgroupfs etc.

Modify interface introduced in previous patch to make use of hashed
spinlocks. Use kernfs_node address as hashing key.
