It does not work that move the freeing of module.name in audit_free_context

Since we should free module.name based on context->types is AUDIT_KERN_MODULE, 
but __audit_syscall_exit is called first, and will set context->type to 0,
When audit_free_context is called, context->type is 0, will cause to fail.

I will change this patches as below:

    audit: fix a memleak caused by auditing load module
    
    module.name will be allocated unconditionally when auditing load
    module, and audit_log_start() can fail with other reasons, or
    audit_log_exit maybe not called, caused module.name is released
    
    so always free module.name in audit_free_context
