Applying dynamic usbcore quirks in early booting when the slab is
not yet ready would cause kernel panic of null pointer dereference
because the quirk_count has been counted as 1 while the quirk_list
was failed to allocate.

i.e.,

To tackle this odd, let's balance the quirk_count to 0 when the kcalloc
call fails, and defer the quirk setting into a lower level callback
which ensures that the kernel memory management has been initialized.
