Don't put this things randomly, if there is some reason it should be
after sysfs it needs a comment, otherwise if it is just allocating
memory it belongs earlier, and the unwind should be done in release.

I also think it is very strange/wrong that both sysfs and counters are
allocating the same alloc_hw_stats object

Why can't they share?
