Subject[PATCH v10 02/10] livepatch: Free only structures with initialized kobject
Date
We are going to add a feature called atomic replace. It will allow to
create a patch that would replace all already registered patches.
For this, we will need to dynamically create funcs and objects
for functions that are no longer patched.

We will want to reuse the existing init() and free() functions. Up to now,
the free() functions checked a limit and were called only for structures
with initialized kobject. But we will want to call them also for structures
that were allocated but where the kobject was not initialized yet.

This patch removes the limit. It calls klp_free*() functions for all
structures. But only the ones with initialized kobject are freed.
The handling of un-initialized structures will be added later with
the support for dynamic structures.

This patch does not change the existing behavior.
