Revert "mm/slub: fix a memory leak in sysfs_slab_add()"

commit 757fed1d08 upstream.

This reverts commit dde3c6b72a.

syzbot report a double-free bug. The following case can cause this bug.

 - mm/slab_common.c: create_cache(): if the __kmem_cache_create() fails,
   it does:

	out_free_cache:
		kmem_cache_free(kmem_cache, s);

 - but __kmem_cache_create() - at least for slub() - will have done

	sysfs_slab_add(s)
		-> sysfs_create_group() .. fails ..
		-> kobject_del(&s->kobj); .. which frees s ...

We can't remove the kmem_cache_free() in create_cache(), because other
error cases of __kmem_cache_create() do not free this.

So, revert the commit dde3c6b72a ("mm/slub: fix a memory leak in
sysfs_slab_add()") to fix this.
