oprofile: Fix crash when unloading module (hr timer mode)

Oprofile may crash in a KVM guest while unlaoding modules. This
happens if oprofile_arch_init() fails and oprofile switches to the hr
timer mode as a fallback. In this case oprofile_arch_exit() is called,
but it never was initialized properly which causes the crash. This
patch fixes this.

oprofile: using timer interrupt.
