Hi all,

the patch I actually used was this:

diff --git a/include/linux/module.h b/include/linux/module.h
index 8fa38d3e7538..f5bc4c046461 100644
--- a/include/linux/module.h
+++ b/include/linux/module.h
@@ -129,13 +129,13 @@ extern void cleanup_module(void);
#define module_init(initfn) \
static inline initcall_t __maybe_unused __inittest(void) \
{ return initfn; } \
- int init_module(void) __attribute__((alias(#initfn)));
+ int init_module(void) __attribute__((__copy__(initfn))) __attribute__((alias(#initfn)));

/* This is only required if you want to be unloadable. */
#define module_exit(exitfn) \
static inline exitcall_t __maybe_unused __exittest(void) \
{ return exitfn; } \
- void cleanup_module(void) __attribute__((alias(#exitfn)));
+ void cleanup_module(void) __attribute__((__copy__(exitfn))) __attribute__((alias(#exitfn)));

#endif

So the final question is: do we want 4.9.x to be buildable with gcc 9.x? If
yes then we can probably get this patches into shape.
