Profile replacement can cause a long chain of profiles to build up
that get freed in a cascading chain of free_profile calls. Because
free_profile is being called via aa_put_profile (and hence kref_put)
each profile free is done via what amounts to recursion. That is
free_profile indirectly calls free_profile on the next profile in the
chain via aa_put_profile.

Break this recursion by directly walking the chain, and as long as
a profile is being freed because it has no more references continue
on to the next profile. This results in at most 2 levels of free_profile
being called.
