Move the firmware config sysctl table to fallback_table.c and use the
new register_sysctl_subdir() helper. This removes the clutter from
kernel/sysctl.c.

So it now takes more lines than the old stuff?  :(


CONFIG_FW_LOADER = m
Before cleaning, no matter whether ko is loaded or not, the sysctl
interface will be created, but now we need to add register and
unregister interfaces, so the number of lines of code has increased

Yes, it is better to call register_firmware_config_sysctl() after 
class_register().

It's my mistake, register_firmware_config_sysctl() is not exported,
there will be no repeated calls.

Sorry, I didn't notice that the unregister_sysctl_table() already checks
the input parameters.

How about renaming hdr to firmware_config_sysct_table_header?

After deleting this code in register_firmware_config_sysctl(), and 
considering register_firmware_config_sysctl() and 
unregister_firmware_config_sysctl() are not exported, whether there is

no need to add  "hdr = NULL;" ?

Pretty much agreed with the other changes, thanks for the review!

But this diff-stat change, indeed, it is unfortunate that we end up
with more code here than before. We'll try to reduce it instead
somehow, however in some cases during this spring-cleaning, since
the goal is to move code from one file to another, it *may* require
more code. So it won't always be negative. But we'll try!

And what sets 'hdr' (worst name for a static variable) to NULL so that
it knows not to be unregistered again as it looks like
register_firmware_config_sysctl() could be called multiple times.
