Subject[PATCH v5 16/26] scripts: Fix the inclusion order in modpost
Date
In the process of creating the source file of a module modpost injects a
set of includes that are not required if the compilation unit is
statically built into the kernel.

The order of inclusion of the headers can cause redefinition problems
(e.g.):

In file included from include/linux/elf.h:5:0,
from include/linux/module.h:18,
from crypto/arc4.mod.c:2:
>> arch/parisc/include/asm/elf.h:324:0: warning: "ELF_OSABI" redefined
#define ELF_OSABI ELFOSABI_LINUX

In file included from include/linux/elfnote.h:62:0,
from include/linux/build-salt.h:4,
from crypto/arc4.mod.c:1:
include/uapi/linux/elf.h:363:0: note: this is the location of
the previous definition
#define ELF_OSABI ELFOSABI_NONE

The issue was exposed during the development of the series [1].
