Subject: [PATCH 0/2] livepatch: Remove custom kobject state handling and duplicated code

Tobin's patch[1] uncovered that the livepatching code handles kobjects
a too complicated way.

The first patch removes the unnecessary custom kobject state handling.

The second patch is an optional code deduplication. I did something
similar already when introducing the atomic replace. But it was
not considered worth it. There are more duplicated things now...

  livepatch: Remove custom kobject state handling
  livepatch: Remove duplicated code for early initialization
