Subject[PATCH v13 04/12] livepatch: Consolidate klp_free functions
Date
The code for freeing livepatch structures is a bit scattered and tricky:

+ direct calls to klp_free_*_limited() and kobject_put() are
used to release partially initialized objects

+ klp_free_patch() removes the patch from the public list
and releases all objects except for patch->kobj

+ object_put(&patch->kobj) and the related wait_for_completion()
are called directly outside klp_mutex; this code is duplicated;

Now, we are going to remove the registration stage to simplify the API
and the code. This would require handling more situations in
klp_enable_patch() error paths.

More importantly, we are going to add a feature called atomic replace.
It will need to dynamically create func and object structures. We will
want to reuse the existing init() and free() functions. This would
create even more error path scenarios.

This patch implements a more clever free functions:

+ checks kobj.state_initialized instead of @limit

+ initializes patch->list early so that the check for empty list
always works

+ The action(s) that has to be done outside klp_mutex are done
in separate klp_free_patch_finish() function. It waits only
when patch->kobj was really released via the _start() part.

This patch does not change the existing behavior.
