    kbuild: check license compatibility when building modules · b817f6fe
    Sam Ravnborg authored
    Modules that uses GPL symbols can no longer be build with kbuild,
    the build will fail during the modpost step.
    When a GPL-incompatible module uses a EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL_FUTURE symbol
    then warn during modpost so author are actually notified.
    
    The actual license compatibility check is shared with the kernel
    to make sure it is in sync.
