commit dde3c6b72a16c2db826f54b2d49bdea26c3534a2 upstream.

syzkaller reports for memory leak when kobject_init_and_add() returns an
error in the function sysfs_slab_add() [1]

When this happened, the function kobject_put() is not called for the
corresponding kobject, which potentially leads to memory leak.

This patch fixes the issue by calling kobject_put() even if
kobject_init_and_add() fails.

  BUG: memory leak
