From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

Accessing the MCA thresholding controls in sysfs concurrently with CPU
hotplug can lead to a couple of KASAN-reported issues:

  BUG: KASAN: use-after-free in sysfs_file_ops+0x155/0x180
  Read of size 8 at addr ffff888367578940 by task grep/4019

and

  BUG: KASAN: use-after-free in show_error_count+0x15c/0x180
  Read of size 2 at addr ffff888368a05514 by task grep/4454

for example. Both result from the fact that the threshold block
creation/teardown code frees the descriptor memory itself instead of
defining proper ->release function and leaving it to the driver core to
take care of that, after all sysfs accesses have completed.

Do that and get rid of the custom freeing code, fixing the above UAFs in
the process.
