    sysfs: kill unnecessary sysfs_get() in open paths
    
    There's no reason to get an extra reference to sysfs_dirent for an
    open file.  Open file has a reference to the dentry which in turn has
    a reference to sysfs_dirent.  This is fairly obvious as otherwise open
    itself won't be able to access the sysfs_dirent.  Kill the extra
    sysfs_get() and matching sysfs_put().
