mm: audit/fix non-modular users of module_init in core code
Code that is obj-y (always built-in) or dependent on a bool Kconfig (built-in or absent) can never be modular. So using module_init as an alias for __initcall can be somewhat misleading. Fix these up now, so that we can relocate module_init from init.h into module.h in the future. If we don't do this, we'd have to add module.h to obviously non-modular code, and that would be a worse thing. The audit targets the following module_init users for change: mm/ksm.c bool KSM mm/mmap.c bool MMU mm/huge_memory.c bool TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE mm/mmu_notifier.c bool MMU_NOTIFIER Note that direct use of __initcall is discouraged, vs. one of the priority categorized subgroups. As __initcall gets mapped onto device_initcall, our use of subsys_initcall (which makes sense for these files) will thus change this registration from level 6-device to level 4-subsys (i.e. slightly earlier). However no observable impact of that difference has been observed during testing. One might think that core_initcall (l2) or postcore_initcall (l3) would be more appropriate for anything in mm/ but if we look at some actual init functions themselves, we see things like: mm/huge_memory.c --> hugepage_init --> hugepage_init_sysfs mm/mmap.c --> init_user_reserve --> sysctl_user_reserve_kbytes mm/ksm.c --> ksm_init --> sysfs_create_group and hence the choice of subsys_initcall (l4) seems reasonable, and at the same time minimizes the risk of changing the priority too drastically all at once. We can adjust further in the future. Also, several instances of missing ";" at EOL are fixed. Signed-off-by: Paul Gortmaker <> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
