kobject: Introduce kset_find_obj_hinted.
One call chain getting to kset_find_obj is: link_mem_sections() find_mem_section() kset_find_obj() This is done during boot. The memory sections were added in a linearly increasing order and link_mem_sections tends to utilize them in that same linear order. Introduce a kset_find_obj_hinted which is passed the result of the previous kset_find_obj which it uses for a quick "is the next object our desired object" check before falling back to the old behavior.
