Subject: [Ocfs2-devel] [PATCH 01/13] sysctl: add new register_sysctl_subdir() helper
Date: Fri, 29 May 2020 07:40:56 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200529074108.16928-2-mcgrof@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200529074108.16928-1-mcgrof@kernel.org>

Often enough all we need to do is create a subdirectory so that
we can stuff sysctls underneath it. However, *if* that directory
was already created early on the boot sequence we really have no
need to use the full boiler plate code for it, we can just use
local variables to help us guide sysctl to place the new leaf files.

So use a helper to do precisely this.
