kprobes: Fix locking imbalance in kretprobes

Fix locking imbalance in kretprobes:

=====================================
[ BUG: bad unlock balance detected! ]
-------------------------------------
kthreadd/2 is trying to release lock (&rp->lock) at:
[<c06b3080>] pre_handler_kretprobe+0xea/0xf4
but there are no more locks to release!

other info that might help us debug this:
1 lock held by kthreadd/2:
 #0:  (rcu_read_lock){..--}, at: [<c06b2b24>] __atomic_notifier_call_chain+0x0/0x5a
