[PATCH arm64-next] net: bpf: arm64: fix module memory leak when JIT image build fails

On ARM64, when the BPF JIT compiler fills the JIT image body with
opcodes during translation of eBPF into ARM64 opcodes, we may fail
for several reasons during that phase: one being that we jump to
the notyet label for not yet supported eBPF instructions such as
BPF_ST. In that case we only free offsets, but not the actual
allocated target image where opcodes are being stored. Fix it by
calling module_free() on dismantle time in case of errors.
