kernel/module.c: compare symbol values when marking symbols as exported in /proc/kallsyms.
When there are two symbols in a module with the same name, one of which is exported, both will be marked as exported in /proc/kallsyms. There aren't any instances of this in the current kernel, but it is easy to construct a simple module with two compilation units that exhibits the problem. $ objdump -j .text -t testmod.ko | grep foo 00000000 l F .text 00000032 foo 00000080 g F .text 00000001 foo $ sudo insmod testmod.ko $ grep "T foo" /proc/kallsyms c28e8000 T foo [testmod] c28e8080 T foo [testmod] Fix this by comparing the symbol values once we've found the exported symbol table entry matching the symbol name. Tested using Ksplice: $ ksplice-create --patch=this_commit.patch --id=bar . $ sudo ksplice-apply ksplice-bar.tar.gz Done! $ grep "T foo" /proc/kallsyms c28e8080 T foo [testmod] Signed-off-by: Tim Abbott <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: Rusty Russell <email@example.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <firstname.lastname@example.org> Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <email@example.com>
