Description Sebastian Herbszt 2015-12-14 22:43:51 UTC
Loading the following module results in a warning on 4.4.0-rc4-1.g923c13b-vanilla but not on 4.4.0-rc4-1.g923c13b-default.

Comment 1 Takashi Iwai 2015-12-16 07:33:14 UTC
I could reproduce this on KVM.

I thought it's easy to spot out, but I seem wrong.  When I build the kernel locally with the same config, this problem doesn't appear.  So it's something sneaked in package level, a quite subtle difference.
Comment 2 Takashi Iwai 2015-12-17 15:26:45 UTC
It looks even more weird.  Something odd happens at compiling the test module.

On a working kernel module, init_module and cleanup_module are at offset 180 and 338, respectively:
% readelf --all sg.ko
Relocation section '.rela.gnu.linkonce.this_module' at offset 0x10e38 contains 2 entries:
  Offset          Info           Type           Sym. Value    Sym. Name + Addend
000000000180  00a100000001 R_X86_64_64       0000000000000000 init_module + 0
000000000338  009700000001 R_X86_64_64       0000000000000000 cleanup_module + 0

Meanwhile the broken test module has a wrong offset for exit_module 340:
% readelf --all foo.ko
Relocation section '.rela.gnu.linkonce.this_module' at offset 0xc80 contains 2 entries:
  Offset          Info           Type           Sym. Value    Sym. Name + Addend
000000000180  001900000001 R_X86_64_64       0000000000000000 init_module + 0
000000000340  001700000001 R_X86_64_64       0000000000000060 cleanup_module + 0

And, the offset 0x340 is conflicting with the original refcnt field (next to exit) in struct module.  Thus the refcnt is overwritten in apply_relocations(), which leads to a negative value, and triggers this bug.
Comment 3 Takashi Iwai 2015-12-17 15:43:11 UTC
OK, now I figured out.  It's unwind_info field that is added by patches.suse/stack-unwind.  That is, struct module is incompatible between vanilla and default due to this.   And, kernel-vanilla-devel refers to kernel-devel that is used commonly by all flavors and built from patched tree.

So, as of now, external module build for vanilla kernel is screwed up utterly.
Michal, shouldn't we have kernel-devel-vanilla independently from other flavors?
Comment 4 Michal Marek 2015-12-17 16:51:27 UTC
Thanks for debugging this. There are actually more things to be fixed:

/lib/modules/*-vanilla/source needs to point to the vanilla source tree
/usr/src/linux-obj/*/vanilla/Makefile needs to use the vanilla source tree

It probably never worked :-(.
Comment 5 Michal Marek 2016-01-22 15:15:15 UTC
Fixed in git:
