sysfs: Remove sysfs_get/put_active_two
It turns out that holding an active reference on a directory is pointless. The purpose of the active references are to allows us to block when removing sysfs entries that have custom methods so we don't remove modules while running modular code and to keep those custom methods from accessing data structures after the files have been removed. Further sysfs_remove_dir remove all elements in the directory before removing the directory itself, so there is no chance we will remove a directory with active children. Signed-off-by: Eric W.
