Subject[Bug fix] delete kobject from list when kobject_add() fail
From
Dear Mochel,
I found there were still issues in failed kobject_add(). For example,
if you try to register two kobjects with the same name into
subsystem, the second registration will fail but the second will keep in
the list of subsystem. Below patch might fix the bug. Please apply.

Yours truly,
Louis Zhuang

kobjec_add() should remove kobject from list.
