Subject[PATCH v3 2/5] fs/filesystems.c: downgrade user-reachable WARN_ONCE() to pr_warn_once()
Date
From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

After request_module(), nothing is stopping the module from being
unloaded until someone takes a reference to it via try_get_module().

The WARN_ONCE() in get_fs_type() is thus user-reachable, via userspace
running 'rmmod' concurrently.

Since WARN_ONCE() is for kernel bugs only, not for user-reachable
situations, downgrade this warning to pr_warn_once().
