SubjectRe: [PATCH] arm64/module: use mod->klp_info section header information

Also we need to free the copied stuff in load_module() when
anything called after post_relocation() fails. I think
that the following would work:

--- a/kernel/module.c
+++ b/kernel/module.c
@@ -3823,6 +3823,8 @@ static int load_module(struct load_info *info, const char __user *uargs,
kfree(mod->args);
free_arch_cleanup:
module_arch_cleanup(mod);
+ if (is_livepatch_module(mod))
+ free_module_elf(mod);
free_modinfo:
free_modinfo(mod);
free_unload:

But I suggest to just move copy_module_elf() up and keep
calling it from load_module() directly. It would make
the error handling more clear.

Best Regards,
Petr
