parentKobject: auto-cleanup on final unref (diff)
Modules: remove unneeded release function
Now that kobjects properly clean up their name structures, no matter if they have a release function or not, we can drop this empty module kobject release function too (it was needed prior to this because of the way we handled static kobject names, we based the fact that if a release function was present, then we could safely free the name string, now we are more smart about things and only free names we have previously set.)
