Subject: net-sysfs: Call dev_hold always in rx_queue_add_kobject
commit ddd9b5e3e765d8ed5a35786a6cb00111713fe161 upstream.
Dev_hold has to be called always in rx_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")
