Use 'E' instead of 'X' for unsigned module taint flag.
Takashi Iwai <tiwai@suse.de> says: > The letter 'X' has been already used for SUSE kernels for very long > time, to indicate the external supported modules. Can the new flag be > changed to another letter for avoiding conflict...? > (BTW, we also use 'N' for "no support", too.) Note: this code should be cleaned up, so we don't have such maps in three places! Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>
