Ah, right.

Yes, we need to free it somewhere and I missed it. free_arch_cleanup seems
to be the correct place.

Unfortunately it is not that simple. arm64's module_finalize() uses
mod->klp_info with the patch, so copy_module_elf() must be called before.
We could move module_finalize() from post_relocation() to load_module()
and place copy_module_elf() between those two, but I don't know. That's up
to Jessica.
