Subject: module loader dead code removal and cleanups v2
Date: Thu, 28 Jan 2021 19:14:08 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210128181421.2279-1-hch@lst.de> (raw)

Hi all,

this series removes support for long term unused export types and
cleans up various loose ends in the module loader.

Changes since v1:
 - move struct symsearch to module.c
 - rework drm to not call find_module at all
 - llow RCU-sched locking for find_module
 - keep find_module as a public API instead of module_loaded
 - update a few comments and commit logs
