Subject[PATCH v5 0/3] module: Introduce module unload taint tracking
Hi Luis,

This iteration is still based on the latest mcgrof/modules-next branch.

I have decided still to use RCU even though no entry is ever removed from
the unloaded tainted modules list. That being said, if I understand
correctly, it is not safe in some instances to use 'module_mutex' in
print_modules(). So instead we disable preemption to ensure list traversal
with concurrent list manipulation e.g. list_add_rcu(), is safe too.

Changes since v4 [1]
- Moved code to kernel/module/tracking.c
(Luis Chamberlain)
- Used only strcmp() in try_add_tainted_module()
(Christophe Leroy)

Changes since v3 [2]
- Fixed kernel build error reported by kernel test robot i.e. moved
'#endif' outside 'if (!list_empty(&unloaded_tainted_modules))'
statement in the context of print_modules()
- Used strncmp() instead of memcmp()
(Oleksandr Natalenko)
- Removed the additional strlen()
(Christoph Lameter)

Changes since v2 [3]
- Dropped RFC from subject
- Removed the newline i.e. "\n" in printk()
- Always include the tainted module's unload count
- Unconditionally display each unloaded tainted module

Please let me know your thoughts.


Aaron Tomlin (3):
module: Make module_flags_taint() accept a module's taints bitmap and
usable outside core code
module: Move module_assert_mutex_or_preempt() to internal.h
module: Introduce module unload taint tracking
