Yes, it should.

Yes, I guess we can do that.

Makes sense, we do

kobject_add(&b->blocks->kobj, ...

in __threshold_add_blocks().

Not list_heads - we modify the refcount of kobjects. See what the arg of
kobject_put() is.

Yes, minus the list_del(&pos->miscj); But that can be made conditional
with a bool arg to deallocate_threshold_blocks() and then remove

Care to take Yazen's patch, fix it up, test it thoroughly (you should
enable KASAN to catch any potential memory leaks) and send it?
