When sysfs_readdir stops short we now cache the next
sysfs_dirent to return to user space in filp->private_data.
There is no impact on the rest of sysfs by doing this and
in the common case it allows us to pick up exactly where
we left off with no seeking.

Additionally I drop and regrab the sysfs_mutex around
filldir to avoid a page fault abritrarily increasing the
hold time on the sysfs_mutex.

v2: Returned to using INT_MAX as the EOF condition.
    seekdir is ambiguous unless all directory entries have
    a unique f_pos value.

Linus good catch.
