kpatch: do not rm selinux rpm owned directory

As part of the kpatch rpm package installation, the /var/lib/kpatch directory
gets created and is set to be selinux owned by the kpatch rpm package.

There is a problem where uninstalling the last kpatch-patch will also remove
this directory. When another kpatch-patch installation occurs, the
/var/lib/kpatch get recreated but withtout the selinux context which triggers a
policy error.

Since /var/lib/kpatch is now created by the rpm spec file, do not remove it
from the uinstall target of the kpatch script. This insures selinux context
