Subject[PATCH 105/196] kobject: grab the kset reference in kobject_add, not kobject_init
Date
kobject_init should not be grabing any references, but only initializing
the object. This patch fixes this, and makes the lock hold-time shorter
for when a kset is present in the kobject.

The current kernel tree has been audited to verify that this change
should be safe.
