sysfs_slab_add should not be called under any lock. But it happens during
an initcall (sysfs_slab_init) when the kmalloc slab array is being set up.

And the problems results from a hotplug event? During system bringup when
the slab caches have not been setup yet?

Is this really something that can happen?
