      module: Make module sysfs functions private. · 6407ebb2
      Rusty Russell authored
      These were placed in the header in ef665c1a
       to get the various
      SYSFS/MODULE config combintations to compile.
      That may have been necessary then, but it's not now.  These functions
      are all local to module.c.

      module: move sysfs exposure to end of load_module · 80a3d1bb
      Rusty Russell authored
      This means a little extra work, but is more logical: we don't put
      anything in sysfs until we're about to put the module into the
      global list an parse its parameters.
      This also gives us a logical place to put duplicate module detection
      in the next patch.

      module: fix kdb's illicit use of struct module_use. · c8e21ced
      Rusty Russell authored
      Linus changed the structure, and luckily this didn't compile any more.

      module: Make the 'usage' lists be two-way · 2c02dfe7
      Linus Torvalds authored
      When adding a module that depends on another one, we used to create a
      one-way list of "modules_which_use_me", so that module unloading could
      see who needs a module.
      It's actually quite simple to make that list go both ways: so that we
      not only can see "who uses me", but also see a list of modules that are
      "used by me".
      In fact, we always wanted that list in "module_unload_free()": when we
      unload a module, we want to also release all the other modules that are
      used by that module.  But because we didn't have that list, we used to
      first iterate over all modules, and then iterate over each "used by me"
      list of that module.
      By making the list two-way, we simplify module_unload_free(), and it
      allows for some trivial fixes later too.
