[PATCH] zero out topology related sysfs nodes

From: Jesse Barnes <jbarnes_at_sgi.com>

Tony pointed out (thanks Tony!) that in -test8 kobject_set_name() will
try to free a kobject's k_name field if it's non-NULL, so we need to
zero it out in case kmalloc() gave us recycled memory or we'll try to
kfree a bogus area.
