    SubjectSET_MODULE_OWNER
    From
    Date
    Hi all,
    most net device drivers have replaced MOD_INC/DEC_USE_COUNT with
    SET_MODULE_OWNER but SET_MODULE_OWNER doesn't do nothing.
    Therefore, those modules (though I can only vouch for 8139too) always
    report 0 use. Some people that had "modprobe -r" in their cronttab found
    it quite annoying.
    I'd guess that there's a good reason for why struct net_device doesn't
    have .owner field and why this happens. Can someone be so kind to point
    it
    out?
