Subject: ISRA optimized functions


I've just pushed new changes to LKRG to better support non-standard kernels 
which are more-likely to have ISRA-optimized functions. Additionally, I've 
added more "relax" rules for initialization since not all hooks are critical 
from LKRG perspective. If some of the hooks can't be placed and are not 
critical, initialization is not halt. However, appropriate message is being 
printed. Summary of the changes:

[1] Change initialization logic for exploit detection module:
  - Not all hooks are fatal. If for any reason non-fatal hook can't be placed, continue initialization and print appropriate message
  - If hook is fatal, stop intialization
[2] Add support for ISRA optimized functions:
  - Some of the functions might be optimized by ISRA. However, some of the hooks can still be functional even under ISRA optimized functions.

ISRA optimized function example:
