sysfs: Comment sysfs directory tagging logic
Add some in-line comments to explain the new infrastructure, which was introduced to support sysfs directory tagging with namespaces. I think an overall description someplace might be good too, but it didn't really seem to fit into Documentation/filesystems/sysfs.txt, which appears more geared toward users, rather than maintainers, of sysfs. (Tejun, please let me know if I can make anything clearer or failed altogether to comment something that should be commented.) Signed-off-by: Serge E. Hallyn <serue@us.ibm.com> Cc: Eric W.
