Inject fault while loading module, kset_register() may fail,
if it fails, but the refcount of kobject is not decreased to
0, the name allocated in kobject_set_name() is leaked. Fix
this by calling kset_put(), so that name can be freed in
callback function kobject_cleanup().

unreferenced object 0xffff888100da9348 (size 8):
  comm "modprobe", pid 257, jiffies 4294701096 (age 33.334s)
  hex dump (first 8 bytes):
    6c 6f 67 6d 61 73 6b 00                          logmask.
  backtrace:
