Users can call ref_module func in their modules to construct
relationships with other modules. However, the holders
'/sys/module/<mod-name>/holders' of the target module donot include
the users` module. So lsmod command misses detailed info of 'Used by'.

When load module, the process is given as follows,
load_module()
	-> mod_sysfs_setup()
		-> add_usage_links
	-> do_init_module
		-> mod->init()

add_usage_links func creates holders of target modules linking to
this module. If ref_module is called in mod->init() func, the usage
links cannot be added.

Consider that add_module_usage and add usage_link may separate, the
link_flag pram is added in ref_module func to decide whether add usage
link after add_module_usage. If link_flag is true, it means usage link
of a to b's holder_dir should be created immediately after add_module_usage.

V2->V3:
- add link_flag pram in ref_module func to decide whether add usage link

V1->V2:
- remove incorrect Fixes tag
- fix error handling of sysfs_create_link as suggested by Jessica Yu

Thanks a lot for pinging me. If I'm remembering correctly, we had to
do this because sysfs intialization is being done too late in
load_module(). The last time I was tinkering with a solution, I think
I was able to avoid needing this extra link_flag param by moving the
mod_sysfs_setup() call earlier in load_module(). It just looks a lot
cleaner that way, without that extra param. Have you looked into
trying that? I would prefer that solution rather than adding another
argument to ref_module().

Thanks,

Jessica
