kmod 27

  • Improvements
    • Link to libcrypto rather than requiring openssl
  • Print a better error message when kernel doesn't support module unload
  • Use PKCS7 instead of CMS for parsing module signature to be compatible with LibreSSL and OpenSSL < 1.1.0
  • Teach modinfo to parse modules.builtin.modinfo. When using Linux kernel gt= v5.2-rc1 it's possible to get module information from this new file. Now modinfo is able to show it instead of an error message that the module is built-in:

Before:

     $ modinfo ext4
     modinfo: ERROR: Module ext4 not found.

After:

     $ modinfo ext4
     name:           ext4
     filename:       (builtin)
     softdep:        pre: crc32c
     license:        GPL

  • Bug fixes
    • Do not link python bindings with libpython to be compatible with python3.8
  • Fix module removal with 'modprobe -r' when a dependency is built-in. Now it properly ignores them and proceed with removal of other dependencies
  • Fix propagation of return code from install/remove commands to the the probe function. The return values of kmod_module_probe_insert_module() have very specific meanings, do not confuse the caller by return codes from system()
  • Fix softdep config parsing leading to buffer overflow
