    kernfs: keep kernfs node alive for __kernfs_remove()
    __kernfs_remove() which is called under kernfs_mutex,
    assumes nobody kills kernfs node whie it's working on it
    and "get"s current kernfs node for that.
    But we hit a warning in kernfs_get(): kn->counter == 0 already:
      ------------[ cut here ]------------

    This could be for example because of kernfs_notify_workfn() which
    does kernfs_put(kn) out of kernfs_mutex held section,
    so move kernfs_put(kn) under the mutex.
