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 0xffff888101d228c0 (size 8):
  comm "modprobe", pid 276, jiffies 4294722700 (age 13.151s)
