Subject: [PATCH v2 3/6] module: rename __kstrtab_ns_* to __kstrtabns_* to avoid symbol conflict
Date: Thu,  3 Oct 2019 16:58:23 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20191003075826.7478-4-yamada.masahiro@socionext.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20191003075826.7478-1-yamada.masahiro@socionext.com>

The module namespace produces __strtab_ns_<sym> symbols to store
namespace strings, but it does not guarantee the name uniqueness.
This is a potential problem because we have exported symbols starting
with "ns_".

For example, kernel/capability.c exports the following symbols:

  EXPORT_SYMBOL(ns_capable);
  EXPORT_SYMBOL(capable);

Assume a situation where those are converted as follows:

  EXPORT_SYMBOL_NS(ns_capable, some_namespace);
  EXPORT_SYMBOL_NS(capable, some_namespace);

The former expands to "__kstrtab_ns_capable" and "__kstrtab_ns_ns_capable",
and the latter to "__kstrtab_capable" and "__kstrtab_ns_capable".
Then, we have the duplicated "__kstrtab_ns_capable".

To ensure the uniqueness, rename "__kstrtab_ns_*" to "__kstrtabns_*".
