Subject[PATCH v7 5/7] livepatch: Support separate list for replaced patches.
Date
From: Jason Baron <jbaron@akamai.com>

We are going to add a feature called atomic replace. It will allow to
create a patch that would replace all already registered patches.

The replaced patches will stay registered because they are typically
unregistered by some package uninstall scripts. But we will remove
these patches from @klp_patches list to keep the enabled patch
on the bottom of the stack. Otherwise, we would need to implement
rather complex logic for moving the patches on the stack. Also
it would complicate implementation of the atomic replace feature.
It is not worth it.

As a result, we will have patches that are registered but that
are not longer usable. Let's get prepared for this and use
a better descriptive name for klp_is_patch_registered() function.

Also create separate list for the replaced patches and allow to
unregister them. Alternative solution would be to add a flag
into struct klp_patch. Note that patch->kobj.state_initialized
is not safe because it can be cleared outside klp_mutex.

This patch does not change the existing behavior.
