      module: fix bne2 "gave up waiting for init of module libcrc32c" · 9bea7f23
      Rusty Russell authored
      Problem: it's hard to avoid an init routine stumbling over a
      request_module these days.  And it's not clear it's always a bad idea:
      for example, a module like kvm with dynamic dependencies on kvm-intel
      or kvm-amd would be neater if it could simply request_module the right
      In this particular case, it's libcrc32c:
      If another module is waiting inside resolve_symbol() for libcrc32c to
      finish initializing (ie. bne2 depends on libcrc32c) then it does so
      holding the module lock, and our request_module() can't make progress
      until that is released.
      Waiting inside resolve_symbol() without the lock isn't all that hard:
      we just need to pass the -EBUSY up the call chain so we can sleep
      where we don't hold the lock.  Error reporting is a bit trickier: we
      need to copy the name of the unfinished module before releasing the
      Other notes:
      1) This also fixes a theoretical issue where a weak dependency would allow
         symbol version mismatches to be ignored.
      2) We rename use_module to ref_module to make life easier for the only
         external user (the out-of-tree ksplice patches).

      module: verify_export_symbols under the lock · be593f4c
      Rusty Russell authored
      It disabled preempt so it was "safe", but nothing stops another module
      slipping in before this module is added to the global list now we don't
      hold the lock the whole time.
      So we check this just after we check for duplicate modules, and just
      before we put the module in the global list.
      (find_symbol finds symbols in coming and going modules, too).

      module: move find_module check to end · 3bafeb62
      Linus Torvalds authored
      I think Rusty may have made the lock a bit _too_ finegrained there, and
      didn't add it to some places that needed it. It looks, for example, like
      PATCH 1/2 actually drops the lock in places where it's needed
      ("find_module()" is documented to need it, but now load_module() didn't
      hold it at all when it did the find_module()).
      Rather than adding a new "module_loading" list, I think we should be able
      to just use the existing "modules" list, and just fix up the locking a
      In fact, maybe we could just move the "look up existing module" a bit
      later - optimistically assuming that the module doesn't exist, and then
      just undoing the work if it turns out that we were wrong, just before
      adding ourselves to the list.

      Kay Sievers <kay.sievers@vrfy.org> reports that we still have some
      contention over module loading which is slowing boot.
      Linus also disliked a previous "drop lock and regrab" patch to fix the
      bne2 "gave up waiting for init of module libcrc32c" message.
      This is more ambitious: we only grab the lock where we need it.

      These were placed in the header in ef665c1a
       to get the various
      SYSFS/MODULE config combintations to compile.
      That may have been necessary then, but it's not now.  These functions
      are all local to module.c.

      module: move sysfs exposure to end of load_module · 80a3d1bb
      Rusty Russell authored
      This means a little extra work, but is more logical: we don't put
      anything in sysfs until we're about to put the module into the
      global list an parse its parameters.
      This also gives us a logical place to put duplicate module detection
      in the next patch.

      module: Make the 'usage' lists be two-way · 2c02dfe7
      Linus Torvalds authored
      When adding a module that depends on another one, we used to create a
      one-way list of "modules_which_use_me", so that module unloading could
      see who needs a module.
      It's actually quite simple to make that list go both ways: so that we
      not only can see "who uses me", but also see a list of modules that are
      "used by me".
      In fact, we always wanted that list in "module_unload_free()": when we
      unload a module, we want to also release all the other modules that are
      used by that module.  But because we didn't have that list, we used to
      first iterate over all modules, and then iterate over each "used by me"
      list of that module.
      By making the list two-way, we simplify module_unload_free(), and it
      allows for some trivial fixes later too.
