parentepca.c: reformat comments and coding style improvements (diff)
Add /sys/module/name/notes
This patch adds the /sys/module/<name>/notes/ magic directory, which has a file for each allocated SHT_NOTE section that appears in <name>.ko. This is the counterpart for each module of /sys/kernel/notes for vmlinux. Reading this delivers the contents of the module's SHT_NOTE sections. This lets userland easily glean any detailed information about that module's build that was stored there at compile time (e.g. by ld --build-id).
