sysfs, kobject: add sysfs wrapper for kernfs_enable_ns()
Currently, kobject is invoking kernfs_enable_ns() directly. This is fine now as sysfs and kernfs are enabled and disabled together. If sysfs is disabled, kernfs_enable_ns() is switched to dummy implementation too and everything is fine; however, kernfs will soon have its own config option CONFIG_KERNFS and !SYSFS && KERNFS will be possible, which can make kobject call into non-dummy kernfs_enable_ns() with NULL kernfs_node pointers leading to an oops. Introduce sysfs_enable_ns() which is a wrapper around kernfs_enable_ns() so that it can be made a noop depending only on CONFIG_SYSFS regardless of the planned CONFIG_KERNFS.
