Even though we use self removing sysfs helper, we still need
to make sure we do the final kobject delete conditionally.
sysfs_remove_file_self() will handle parallel calls to remove
the sysfs attribute file and returns true only in the caller
that removed the attribute file. The other parallel callers
are returned false. Do the final kobject delete checking
the return value of sysfs_remove_file_self().
