Overall I think you need to also fix up the drivers. It just makes it a
nicer driver API where the LLDs don't know about sysfs and doesn't have
to worry about it.

Let's start with just this first piece where we handle sysfs in the lib
and class like you are doing in this patchset. We can do the LLDs
interaction with the lib in a second patchset to make this easier and fix
the initial bug and cleanup some code.

In a separate patchset, we can then go deeper and maybe just merge/kill some
of the lib/class interface since every driver except qla4xxx hooks into the
lib. So we have this distinction just for that one driver's session mode
and that doesn't make a lot of sense.
