[PATH] symlink doesn't support kobj name > 20 charaters (KOBJ_NAME_LEN)

Hi Greg,

Since symlink.c uses "name" field of a kobj when it calculates the
length,  it gets a
wrong value if the kobj's name  has more than 20 charathers.  A correct
way to do
that is to call kobject_name(kobj) instead of using kobj->name directly.

Can you  apply attached patch to you tree?
