[linux-lvm] [patch] support /sys/block being symlinks instead of directories

this patch removes the assumption that device directories in /sys are
always real directories. With the work-in-progress unification of all
sysfs devices, they will show up as symlinks pointing into a single
device tree if the kernel does not set CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED.

It also adds direct support for a future "block as a class", which will
not have any hierarchy to recurse to find all block devices.
