[PATCH 0/3] kallsyms: Optimize the search for module symbols by livepatch and bpf

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Patches 7-8 in [1] have been delayed until now due to merge conflicts. The
current patch 1/3 corresponds to patch 7/9 in [1], and the current patch 3/3
corresponds to patch 8/9 in [1]. But there are some changes. Originally, only
livepatch uses function module_kallsyms_on_each_symbol(), it find the specified
function for the specified module. Now, bpf also uses function
module_kallsyms_on_each_symbol(), it needs to traverse all the modules. So for
the new parameter 'modname' of module_kallsyms_on_each_symbol(), if it's NULL,
the symbols of all modules are still traversed for compatibility with the case
of bpf.

Patch 2/3 is new, as I understand it, it should be fine. If it doesn't work,
then patch 3/3 should be dropped.
