Subject: net-sysfs: Call dev_hold always in netdev_queue_add_kobject
commit e0b60903b434a7ee21ba8d8659f207ed84101e89 upstream.
Dev_hold has to be called always in netdev_queue_add_kobject.
Otherwise usage count drops below 0 in case of failure in
kobject_init_and_add.
Fixes: b8eb718348b8 ("net-sysfs: Fix reference count leak in rx|netdev_queue_add_kobject")
