livepatch: make kobject in klp_object statically allocated
Make kobj variable (of type struct kobject) statically allocated in klp_object structure. It will allow us to move in the func-object-patch hierarchy through kobject links. The only reason to have it dynamic was to not have empty release callback in the code. However we have empty callbacks for function and patch in the code now, so it is no longer valid and the advantage of static allocation is clear.
