sysfs: Kill nlink counting.
Tracking the number of subdirectories requires an extra field that increases the size of sysfs_dirent. nlinks are not particularly interesting for sysfs and the nlink counts are wrong when network namespaces are involved so stop counting them, and always return nlink == 1. Userspace already knows that directories with nlink == 1 have an nlink count they can't use to count subdirectories. This reduces the size of sysfs_dirent by 8 bytes on 64bit platforms.
