please ignore this patch.  It does address a bug in this function
(being part of the upstream cleanup patches) however the bug can not be
triggered in the Lucid kernel as the calling function
aa_interface_remove_profiles removes the all children with
__aa_profile_list_release before calling this fn.

		__aa_replace_profile(profile, NULL);
