Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.2 13/85] kernel/module.c: Only return -EEXIST for modules that have finished loading
Date
From: Prarit Bhargava <prarit@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit 6e6de3dee51a439f76eb73c22ae2ffd2c9384712 ]

Microsoft HyperV disables the X86_FEATURE_SMCA bit on AMD systems, and
linux guests boot with repeated errors:

amd64_edac_mod: Unknown symbol amd_unregister_ecc_decoder (err -2)
amd64_edac_mod: Unknown symbol amd_register_ecc_decoder (err -2)
amd64_edac_mod: Unknown symbol amd_report_gart_errors (err -2)
amd64_edac_mod: Unknown symbol amd_unregister_ecc_decoder (err -2)
amd64_edac_mod: Unknown symbol amd_register_ecc_decoder (err -2)
amd64_edac_mod: Unknown symbol amd_report_gart_errors (err -2)

The warnings occur because the module code erroneously returns -EEXIST
for modules that have failed to load and are in the process of being
removed from the module list.

module amd64_edac_mod has a dependency on module edac_mce_amd. Using
modules.dep, systemd will load edac_mce_amd for every request of
amd64_edac_mod. When the edac_mce_amd module loads, the module has
state MODULE_STATE_UNFORMED and once the module load fails and the state
becomes MODULE_STATE_GOING. Another request for edac_mce_amd module
executes and add_unformed_module() will erroneously return -EEXIST even
though the previous instance of edac_mce_amd has MODULE_STATE_GOING.
Upon receiving -EEXIST, systemd attempts to load amd64_edac_mod, which
fails because of unknown symbols from edac_mce_amd.

add_unformed_module() must wait to return for any case other than
MODULE_STATE_LIVE to prevent a race between multiple loads of
dependent modules.
