Series [01/13] powerpc/powernv: remove get_cxl_module | expand

Commit Message

Christoph Hellwig Feb. 2, 2021, 12:13 p.m. UTC
Allow for a RCU-sched critical section around find_module, following
the lower level find_module_all helper, and switch the two callers
outside of module.c to use such a RCU-sched critical section instead
of module_mutex.
