    linsysfs(4): Keep Linux compatible sysfs the same as Ubuntu
    By checking Ubuntu, there is no `/sys/subsystem' in sysfs. To compatible
    with Ubuntu, delete the 'subsystem' creation in Linux compatible module.
    On the other hand, the sysfs `/sys/subsystem' cause failure for some
    Linux udev cases. In Linux udev source code, there is a function named
    `scan_devices_all', and it will scan `/sys/subsystem' if it is existed,
    but now there are nothing in /sys/subsystem `, and it returns empty
    to cause some use cases failed.
