[ Upstream commit 8fd0c1b0647a6bda4067ee0cd61e8395954b6f28 ]

My local syzbot instance hit memory leak in nilfs2. The problem was in
missing kobject_put() in nilfs_sysfs_delete_device_group().

kobject_del() does not call kobject_cleanup() for passed kobject and it
leads to leaking duped kobject name if kobject_put() was not called.

Fail log:
