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

unreferenced object 0xffff888103bddb68 (size 8):
  comm "systemd-udevd", pid 341, jiffies 4294903262 (age 42.212s)
  hex dump (first 8 bytes):
