Fix the race between load and unload a kernel module.

sys_delete_module()
 try_stop_module()
  mod->state = _GOING
					add_unformed_module()
					 old = find_module_all()
					 (old->state == _GOING =>
					  wait_event_interruptible())

					 During pre-condition
					 finished_loading() rets 0
					 schedule()
					 (never gets waken up later)
 free_module()
  mod->state = _UNFORMED
   list_del_rcu(&mod->list)
   (dels mod from "modules" list)

return

The race above leads to modprobe hanging forever on loading
a module.

Error paths on loading module call wake_up_all(&module_wq) after
freeing module, so let's do the same on straight module unload.

Fixes: ms commit 6e6de3dee51a ("kernel/module.c: Only return
-EEXIST for modules that have finished loading")
