    [PATCH] sysctl: remove support for directory strategy routines
    parse_table has support for calling a strategy routine when descending into 
    directory.  To date no one has used this functionality and the /proc/sys
    interface has no analog to it.
    So no one is using this functionality kill it and make the binary sysctl 
    easier to follow.
