Merge tag 'modules-next-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rusty/linux
Pull mudule updates from Rusty Russell: "We get rid of the general module prefix confusion with a binary config option, fix a remove/insert race which Never Happens, and (my favorite) handle the case when we have too many modules for a single commandline. Seriously, the kernel is full, please go away!" * tag 'modules-next-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rusty/linux: modpost: fix unwanted VMLINUX_SYMBOL_STR expansion X.509: Support parse long form of length octets in Authority Key Identifier module: don't unlink the module until we've removed all exposure. kernel: kallsyms: memory override issue, need check destination buffer length MODSIGN: do not send garbage to stderr when enabling modules signature modpost: handle huge numbers of modules. modpost: add -T option to read module names from file/stdin. modpost: minor cleanup. genksyms: pass symbol-prefix instead of arch module: fix symbol versioning with symbol prefixes CONFIG_SYMBOL_PREFIX: cleanup.
