The only downside here is that you can get a message about starting
patching transition and then a message about completing unpatching
transition, because the patching failed and klp_cancel_transition() was
called. I think we can live with that, because there would be a message
from klp_cancel_transition() as well and hopefully no one would be
confused.

This one.
