I do not understand this patch.
This makes the implementation so complicated.

I think MODULE_INFO(livepatch, "Y") is cleaner than
LIVEPATCH_* in Makefile.


How about this approach?


[1] Make modpost generate the list of livepatch modules.
(livepatch-modules)

[2] Generate Symbols.list in scripts/Makefile.modpost
(vmlinux + modules excluding livepatch-modules)

[3] Run klp-convert for modules in livepatch-modules.


If you do this, you can remove most of the build system hacks
can't you?


I attached an example implementation for [1].

Please check whether this works.

Thanks.

Subject: [PATCH] livepatch: make modpost generate the list of livepatch
modules

Reverse the livepatch-modules direction.

The modpost generates the livepatch-modules file instead of
Makefile feeding it to modpost.

The implementation just mimics write_dump().
