Merge git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rusty/linux-2.6-for-linus
* git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rusty/linux-2.6-for-linus: module: fix bne2 "gave up waiting for init of module libcrc32c" module: verify_export_symbols under the lock module: move find_module check to end module: make locking more fine-grained. module: Make module sysfs functions private. module: move sysfs exposure to end of load_module module: fix kdb's illicit use of struct module_use. module: Make the 'usage' lists be two-way
