    Subjectkobject ->k_name memory leak
    Hi, Greg!

    Commit ce2c9cb0259acd2aed184499ebe41ab00da13b25 aka
    "kobject: remove the static array for the name" introduced memory leak
    of a module name after modprobe/rmmod. Apparently for modules ->release
    callback is NULL.

    kobject_cleanup: ->release = 00000000, name = 'foo_sysctl'
