Both patches pass my boot tests on arm64 and arm64be (I didn't test any others).

Tested-by: Guenter Roeck <>

I wasn't sure it the two patches replace or fix commit 4ef12f719802 ("kobject:
Make sure the parent does not get released before its children"), so I tried
to re-apply 4ef12f719802 on top of the two patches. Unfortunately that still
results in crashes and UAF messages.
