SubjectRe: [PATCH 12/24] kbuild, soc: sunxi: sram: remove MODULE_LICENSE in non-modules
Date
Dne petek, 17. februar 2023 ob 15:10:47 CET je Nick Alcock napisal(a):
> Since commit 8b41fc4454e ("kbuild: create modules.builtin without
> Makefile.modbuiltin or tristate.conf"), MODULE_LICENSE declarations
> are used to identify modules. As a consequence, uses of the macro
> in non-modules will cause modprobe to misidentify their containing
> object file as a module when it is not (false positives), and modprobe
> might succeed rather than failing with a suitable error message.

> So remove it in the files in this commit, none of which can be built as
