Subject[PATCH v2] kbuild: check uniqueness of module names
Date
In the recent build test of linux-next, Stephen saw a build error
caused by a broken .tmp_versions/*.mod file:

https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/5/13/991

drivers/net/phy/asix.ko and drivers/net/usb/asix.ko have the same
basename, and there is a race in generating .tmp_versions/asix.mod

Kbuild has not checked this before, and it suddenly shows up with
obscure error message when this kind of race occurs.

Non-unique module names cause various sort of problems, but it is
not trivial to catch them by eyes.

Hence, this script.

It checks not only real modules, but also built-in modules (i.e.
controlled by tristate CONFIG option, but currently compiled with =y).
Non-unique names for built-in modules also cause problems because
/sys/modules/ would fall over.

I tested allmodconfig on the latest kernel, and it detected the
following:

warning: same basename if the following are built as modules:
drivers/regulator/88pm800.ko
drivers/mfd/88pm800.ko
warning: same basename if the following are built as modules:
drivers/gpu/drm/bridge/adv7511/adv7511.ko
drivers/media/i2c/adv7511.ko
warning: same basename if the following are built as modules:
drivers/net/phy/asix.ko
drivers/net/usb/asix.ko
warning: same basename if the following are built as modules:
fs/coda/coda.ko
drivers/media/platform/coda/coda.ko
warning: same basename if the following are built as modules:

Changes in v2:
- redirect messages to stderr
- use '--' after 'basename -a'
- use '-r' for xargs to cope with empty modules.order/modules.builtin
