modules: fix longstanding /proc/kallsyms vs module insertion race. (2016-02-03 16:58:15 +1030)

----------------------------------------------------------------
Fix for async_probe module param added in 4.3 (clearly not widely used yet),
and a much more interesting kallsyms race which has been around approximately
forever. This fix is more invasive, and will require some care in backporting,
but I hated all the bandaids I could think of, so...

There are some more coming, which are only for breakages introduced this
cycle (livepatch), but wanted these in now.

Thanks,
Rusty.

Luis R. Rodriguez (1):
modules: fix modparam async_probe request

Rusty Russell (2):
module: wrapper for symbol name.
