Subject[72/89] oprofile: Free potentially owned tasks in case of errors
2.6.39-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Robert Richter <robert.richter@amd.com>

commit 6ac6519b93065625119a347be1cbcc1b89edb773 upstream.

After registering the task free notifier we possibly have tasks in our
dying_tasks list. Free them after unregistering the notifier in case
of an error.
