    Subject__attribute__((unused))
    Hi,

    I notice that module.h contains stuff like:

    #define MODULE_GENERIC_TABLE(gtype,name) \
    extern const struct gtype##_id __mod_##gtype##_table \
    __attribute__ ((unused, alias(__stringify(name))))

    and even:

    #define __MODULE_INFO(tag, name, info) \
    static const char __module_cat(name,__LINE__)[] \
    __attribute_used__ \
    __attribute__((section(".modinfo"),unused)) = __stringify(tag) "=" info

    My understanding is that we shouldn't be using __attribute__((unused))
    in either of these - can someone confirm.

    The second one looks fairly dodgy since we're telling a compiler that
    it's both used and unused. That sounds a bit like a HHGTTG puzzle (you
    have tea and no tea.)
