Subject[PATCH 01/46] modules: fix module "notes" kobject leak
Date
From: Alexey Dobriyan <adobriyan@gmail.com>

Fix "notes" kobject leak

It happens every rmmod if KALLSYMS=y and SYSFS=y.

# modprobe foo

kobject: 'foo' (ffffffffa00743d0): kobject_add_internal: parent: 'module', set: 'module'
kobject: 'holders' (ffff88017e7c5770): kobject_add_internal: parent: 'foo', set: '<NULL>'
kobject: 'foo' (ffffffffa00743d0): kobject_uevent_env
kobject: 'foo' (ffffffffa00743d0): fill_kobj_path: path = '/module/foo'
kobject: 'notes' (ffff88017fa9b668): kobject_add_internal: parent: 'foo', set: '<NULL>'
^^^^^
# rmmod foo

kobject: 'holders' (ffff88017e7c5770): kobject_cleanup
kobject: 'holders' (ffff88017e7c5770): auto cleanup kobject_del
kobject: 'holders' (ffff88017e7c5770): calling ktype release
kobject: (ffff88017e7c5770): dynamic_kobj_release
kobject: 'holders': free name
kobject: 'foo' (ffffffffa00743d0): kobject_cleanup
kobject: 'foo' (ffffffffa00743d0): does not have a release() function, it is broken and must be fixed.
kobject: 'foo' (ffffffffa00743d0): auto cleanup 'remove' event
kobject: 'foo' (ffffffffa00743d0): kobject_uevent_env
kobject: 'foo' (ffffffffa00743d0): fill_kobj_path: path = '/module/foo'
kobject: 'foo' (ffffffffa00743d0): auto cleanup kobject_del
kobject: 'foo': free name
