Subject[PATCH] modules: Fix display of wrong module .text address
Date
In kernel v4.16.0 the module .text address is displayed
wrong when using /sys/module/*/sections/.text file.
Commit ef0010a30935 ("vsprintf: don't use 'restricted_pointer()' when
not restricting")
is the first bad commit.

Here is the issue, using module qeth_l2 on s390 which is the
ethernet device driver:

[root@s35lp76 ~]# lsmod
Module Size Used by
qeth_l2 94208 1
...

[root@s35lp76 ~]# cat /proc/modules | egrep '^qeth_l2'
qeth_l2 94208 1 - Live 0x000003ff80401000
^ This is the correct address in memory
[root@s35lp76 ~]# cat /sys/module/qeth_l2/sections/.text
0x0000000018ea8363 <---- This is a wrong address
[root@s35lp76 ~]#

This breaks the perf tool which uses this address on s390
to calculate start of .text section in memory.

Fix this by printing the correct (unhashed) address.

Thanks to Jessica Yu for helping on this.
