Currently, the free function gets the parent of the current element
type, and invoke its free function to continue freeing the list.
However, in case the hierarchy of the classes has more than 1 level

To fix that, change the generator to get the ancestor of a class, and
invoking that instead.  Also, avoid to set the @_next back, as it is not

I would say "base class" except "ancestor" because the naming confused me, but
other than that it looks good to me.
