Subject[Patch] Module Unloading using Read-Copy-Update


In this post I would like to submit a patch providing a two phase cleanup logic
for solving the module unloading races in linux. It uses the deferred update
interface provided by the Read-Copy-Update mechanism. A patch with
implementation of Read-Copy-Update on linux has been posted earlier on lkml and
lse-tech by Dipankar Sarma

In this first version of the new cleanup logic, I have tried to keep the changes lesser. Please download the patch and a readme along with a few testcases from

Thank you,
