fs/filesystems.c: downgrade user-reachable WARN_ONCE() to pr_warn_once()
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(). Keep it printed once only, since the intent of this warning is to detect a bug in modprobe at boot time. Printing the warning more than once wouldn't really provide any useful extra information. Fixes: 41124db869b7 ("fs: warn in case userspace lied about modprobe return") Signed-off-by: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Reviewed-by: Jessica Yu <jeyu@kernel.org> Cc: Alexei Starovoitov <ast@kernel.org> Cc: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org> Cc: Jeff Vander Stoep <jeffv@google.com> Cc: Jessica Yu <jeyu@kernel.org> Cc: Kees Cook <keescook@chromium.org> Cc: Luis Chamberlain <mcgrof@kernel.org> Cc: NeilBrown <neilb@suse.com> Cc: <stable@vger.kernel.org> [4.13+] Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20200312202552.241885-3-ebiggers@kernel.org Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
