I am not super happy with the negative check as well. The problem is
that in __klp_free_objects() it would look like:

if (nops_only && !obj->dynamic)
continue;

By other words, "free_all" works better with both "nops" and "dynamic".

That said, I do not mind about it. Tell me what you prefer and I'll
change it.

I wrote this comment when I was lost in thoughts how to make freeing
safe. Especially I wondered whether we would need to wait until
the structures are freed.

You are right that this is needed to remove the freed nops/dynamic
structures in general.

I will remove the comment.

Best Regards,
Petr
