subsystem_unregister() breakage in -mm

I get "BUG: failure at mm/slab.c:591/page_get_cache()!" in latest -mm
when removing the fuse module.

This patch titled "kobject: remove the static array for the name"
looks like it's responsible. Reverting it cures the problem.

The root of the problem seems to be, that decl_subsys() initializes
k_name with a string constant. Then subsystem_unregister() will put
the kobject, which will free the k_name.

So, what's the right way to deal with this?
