I have now run more extensive Syzkaller testing on following patches:

cb626bf566eb net-sysfs: Fix reference count leak
ddd9b5e3e765 net-sysfs: Call dev_hold always in rx_queue_add_kobject
e0b60903b434 net-sysfs: Call dev_hold always in netdev_queue_add_kobje
48a322b6f996 net-sysfs: fix netdev_queue_add_kobject() breakage
b8eb718348b8 net-sysfs: Fix reference count leak in rx|netdev_queue_add_kobject

These patches are fixing couple of memory leaks including this one found
by Syzbot: https://syzkaller.appspot.com/bug?extid=ad8ca40ecd77896d51e2

I can reproduce these memory leaks in following stable branches: 4.14,
4.19, and 5.4.

These are all now merged into net/master tree and based on my testing
they are ready to be taken into stable branches as well.
