sysfs: handle duplicate removal attempts in sysfs_remove_group()

Commit bcdde7e2

 (sysfs: make __sysfs_remove_dir() recursive) changed
the behavior so that directory removals will be done recursively. This
means that the sysfs group might already be removed if its parent directory
has been removed.

The current code outputs warnings similar to following log snippet when it
detects that there is no group for the given kobject:

 WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 4 at fs/sysfs/group.c:214 sysfs_remove_group+0xc6/0xd0()

On this particular machine I see ~16 of these message during Thunderbolt

Fix this in similar way that was done for sysfs_remove_one() by checking
if the parent directory has already been removed and bailing out early.
