Safe module loading requires that we try_module_get() in a context
where the module cannot be unloaded, typically protected by
a spinlock that module-unload has to take.
This doesn't currently happen in class_get_type().

As free_module() calls synchronize_rcu() between calling the
exit function and freeing the module, we can use rcu_read_lock()
to check if the exit function has been called, and try_module_get()
if it hasn't.

We must also check the return status of try_module_get().
