ftrace - fix dynamic ftrace memory leak



The ftrace dynamic function update allocates a record to store the
instruction pointers that are being modified. If the modified
instruction pointer fails to update, then the record is marked as
failed and nothing more is done.

Worse, if the modification fails, but the record ip function is still
called, it will allocate a new record and try again. In just a matter
of time, will this cause a serious memory leak and crash the system.

This patch plugs this memory leak. When a record fails, it is
included back into the pool of records to be used. Now a record may
fail over and over again, but the number of allocated records will
not increase.
