Subject[RFC PATCH] slub: release kobject if sysfs_create_group failed in sysfs_slab_add
Date
In sysfs_slab_add, after kobject_init_and_add, kobject is inited and added.
Later, if sysfs_create_group fails, just simply return an error. This may
cause a memory leak. unlink and put the kobject if sysfs_create_group failed.
