Subject: [PATCH 5.1 090/405] cpufreq: Fix kobject memleak

[ Upstream commit 4ebe36c94aed95de71a8ce6a6762226d31c938ee ]

Currently the error return path from kobject_init_and_add() is not
followed by a call to kobject_put() - which means we are leaking the
kobject.

Fix it by adding a call to kobject_put() in the error path of
kobject_init_and_add().
