module: refactor load_module
I'd start from the trivial stuff. There's a fair amount of straight-line code that just makes the function hard to read just because you have to page up and down so far. Some of it is trivial to just create a helper function for. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>
