[PATCH v4 1/3] livepatch: use lists to manage patches, objects and functions




Currently klp_patch contains a pointer to a statically allocated array of
struct klp_object and struct klp_objects contains a pointer to a statically
allocated array of klp_func. In order to allow for the dynamic allocation
of objects and functions, link klp_patch, klp_object, and klp_func together
via linked lists. This allows us to more easily allocate new objects and
functions, while having the iterator be a simple linked list walk.

This patch is intended to be a no-op until atomic replace is introduced by
a subsequent patch.
