Subject[PATCH 4.4 142/162] kernel/module.c: wakeup processes in module_wq on module unload
Date
From: Konstantin Khorenko <khorenko@virtuozzo.com>

[ Upstream commit 5d603311615f612320bb77bd2a82553ef1ced5b7 ]

Fix the race between load and unload a kernel module.

sys_delete_module()
try_stop_module()
mod->state = _GOING
add_unformed_module()
old = find_module_all()
(old->state == _GOING =>
wait_event_interruptible())

During pre-condition
finished_loading() rets 0
schedule()
(never gets waken up later)
free_module()
mod->state = _UNFORMED
list_del_rcu(&mod->list)
(dels mod from "modules" list)

return

The race above leads to modprobe hanging forever on loading
a module.

Error paths on loading module call wake_up_all(&module_wq) after
freeing module, so let's do the same on straight module unload.

Fixes: 6e6de3dee51a ("kernel/module.c: Only return -EEXIST for modules that have finished loading")
