    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.)
