bootup: move 'usermodehelper_enable()' a little earlier
Commit d5767c53535a ("bootup: move 'usermodehelper_enable()' to the end of do_basic_setup()") moved 'usermodehelper_enable()' to end of do_basic_setup() to after the initcalls. But then I get failed to let uvesafb work on my computer, and lose the splash boot. So maybe we could start usermodehelper_enable a little early to make some task work that need eary init with the help of user mode. [ I would *really* prefer that initcalls not call into user space - even the real 'init' hasn't been execve'd yet, after all! But for uvesafb it really does look like we don't have much choice. I considered doing this when we mount the root filesystem, but depending on config options that is in multiple places. We could do the usermode helper enable as a rootfs_initcall().. So I'm just using wang yanqing's trivial patch. It's not wonderful, but it's simple and should work. We should revisit this some day, though. - Linus ] Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
