module: Fix mod->mkobj.kobj potentially freed too early

DEBUG_KOBJECT_RELEASE helps to find the issue attached below.

After some investigation, it seems the reason is:
The mod->mkobj.kobj(ffffffffa01600d0 below) is freed together with mod
itself in free_module(). However, its children still hold references to
it, as the delay caused by DEBUG_KOBJECT_RELEASE. So when the
child(holders below) tries to decrease the reference count to its parent
in kobject_del(), BUG happens as it tries to access already freed memory.

This patch tries to fix it by waiting for the mod->mkobj.kobj to be
really released in the module removing process (and some error code
paths).
