Subject[PATCH 1/2] sysctl: Don't take the use count of multiple heads at a time.

The current code works fine, and is actually not buggy but it
does prevent enabling the use of lockdep to check refcounting
vs lock holding ordering problems. So since we can ensure
that we are only hold a single sysctl_head at a time. Allowing
lockdep to complain.
