IB/uverbs: Consolidate uobject destruction
There are several flows that can destroy a uobject and each one is minimized and sprinkled throughout the code base, making it difficult to understand and very hard to modify the destroy path. Consolidate all of these into uverbs_destroy_uobject() and call it in all cases where a uobject has to be destroyed. This makes one change to the lifecycle, during any abort (eg when alloc_commit is not called) we always call out to alloc_abort, even if remove_commit needs to be called to delete a HW object. This also renames RDMA_REMOVE_DURING_CLEANUP to RDMA_REMOVE_ABORT to clarify its actual usage and revises some of the comments to reflect what the life cycle is for the type implementation.

- * [alloc]: Starts with alloc_begin. The handlers logic is than
- * executed. If the handler is successful, alloc_commit
- * is called and the object is inserted to the repository.
- * Once alloc_commit completes the object is visible to

- e Otherwise, alloc_abort is called and the object is
- * destroyed.
- * [lookup]: Starts with lookup_get which fetches and locks the
- * object. After the handler finished using the object, it
- * needs to call lookup_put to unlock it. The exclusive
- * flag indicates if the object is locked for exclusive
- * access.
- * [remove]: Starts with lookup_get with exclusive flag set. This
- * locks the object for exclusive access. If the handler
- * code completed successfully, remove_commit is called
- * and the ib_uobject is removed from the context's
- * uobjects repository and put. The object itself is
- * destroyed as well. Once remove succeeds new krefs to
- * the object cannot be acquired by other threads or
- * userspace and the hardware driver is removed from the
- * object. Other krefs on the object may still exist.
- * If the handler code failed, lookup_put should be
- * called. This callback is used when the context
- * is destroyed as well (process termination,
- * reset flow).
