sysfs: fix namespace refcnt leak
As mount() and kill_sb() is not a one-to-one match, we shoudn't get ns refcnt unconditionally in sysfs_mount(), and instead we should get the refcnt only when kernfs_mount() allocated a new superblock. v2: - Changed the name of the new argument, suggested by Tejun. - Made the argument optional, suggested by Tejun. v3: - Make the new argument as second-to-last arg, suggested by Tejun.
