Hi all,

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

Changes since v2:
 - clean up klp_find_object_symbol a bit
 - remove the now unused module_assert_mutex helper 

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

The static inline get_cxl_module function is entirely unused since commit
8bf6b91a5125a ("Revert "powerpc/powernv: Add support for the cxl kernel
api on the real phb"), so remove it.

drm_fb_helper_modinit has a lot of boilerplate for what is not very
simple functionality.  Just open code it in the only caller using
IS_ENABLED and IS_MODULE, and skip the find_module check as a
request_module is harmless if the module is already loaded (and not
other caller has this find_module check either).

find_module is not used by modular code any more, and random driver code
has no business calling it to start with.

Allow for a RCU-sched critical section around find_module, following
the lower level find_module_all helper, and switch the two callers
outside of module.c to use such a RCU-sched critical section instead
of module_mutex.

Require an explicit call to module_kallsyms_on_each_symbol to look
for symbols in modules instead of the call from kallsyms_on_each_symbol,
and acquire module_mutex inside of module_kallsyms_on_each_symbol instead
of leaving that up to the caller.  Note that this slightly changes the
behavior for the livepatch code in that the symbols from vmlinux are not
iterated anymore if objname is set, but that actually is the desired
behavior in this case.

kallsyms_on_each_symbol and module_kallsyms_on_each_symbol are only used
by the livepatching code, so don't build them if livepatching is not
enabled.

Except for two lockdep asserts module_mutex is only used in module.c.
Remove the two asserts given that the functions they are in are not
exported and just called from the module code, and mark module_mutex
static.

each_symbol_in_section just contains a trivial loop over its arguments.
Just open code the loop in the two callers.

each_symbol_section is only called by find_symbol, so merge the two
functions.

Simplify the calling convention by passing the find_symbol_args structure
to find_symbol instead of initializing it inside the function.

EXPORT_UNUSED_SYMBOL* is not actually used anywhere.  Remove the
unused functionality as we generally just remove unused code anyway.

I think this should be in fact

  if (!find_symbol(&fsa) || strong_try_module_get(fsa.owner)) {

to get the logic right (note the missing !). We want to return NULL if 
strong_try_module_get() does not succeed for a found symbol.

Thanks Christoph for cleaning up all that aged cruft, and thanks everyone
for the reviews.

I was curious about EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL_FUTURE and EXPORT_UNUSED_SYMBOL
variants, and found that most of that stuff was introduced between
2006 - 2008. All the of the unused symbols were removed and gpl future
symbols were converted to gpl quite a long time ago, and I don't
believe these export types have been used ever since. So I
think it's safe to retire those export types now.

The patchset looks good so far. After Miroslav's comments are
addressed, I'll wait an extra day or two in case there are more
comments before queueing them onto modules-next. I can take the first
two patches as well provided the acks are there (I think patch 2 is
missing Daniel Vetter's ack from v1 of the series, but I'll add that
back in).

Thanks,

Jessica

I did remove the find_module entirely compared to v1, so I'd prefer
another explicit ACK for the new version.

Indeed. Fixed for the next version.

I believe you're spot on - based on reading through git log and
checking the ML archives.

Shame I didn't get to finish a similar series I had locally. Patches
11-13 match what I have here so:

Subject: module: pass struct find_symbol_args to find_symbol

Simplify the calling convention by passing the find_symbol_args structure
to find_symbol instead of initializing it inside the function.
