I think I got the real problem, that's introduced from former commit
a0e1d1be204612ee83b3afe8aa24c5d27e63d464, this results kmem_cache
always be freed at kmem_cache_create....
Can following patch fix this issue?

Subject: [PATCH] slub: fix kmem_cache wrongly freed in kmem_cache_create

commit a0e1d1b move sysfs operations outside of slub_lock, but wrongly
freed kmem_cache in any cases (should only free kmem_cache when open failed).
