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. To fix this by
calling kset_put(), so that name can be freed in callback function
kobject_cleanup() and 'subdir' is freed in kset_release().

unreferenced object 0xffff88810ad69050 (size 8):
