Subject[85/90] kprobes: initialize before using a hlist
3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Ananth N Mavinakayanahalli <ananth@in.ibm.com>

commit d496aab567e7e52b3e974c9192a5de6e77dce32c upstream.

Commit ef53d9c5e ("kprobes: improve kretprobe scalability with hashed
locking") introduced a bug where we can potentially leak
kretprobe_instances since we initialize a hlist head after having used
it.

Initialize the hlist head before using it.
