Subject: [PATCH RESEND] sched/cpufreq: Fix kobject memleak

Currently error return from kobject_init_and_add() is not followed by a
call to kobject_put().  This means there is a memory leak.

Add call to kobject_put() in error path of kobject_init_and_add().

Signed-off-by: Tobin C. Harding <tobin@...nel.org>

Resend with SOB tag.
