Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v5] usertools/devbind: fix binding for built-in kernel drivers
Date: Mon, 23 Nov 2020 11:05:33 +0800
Message-ID: <20201123030533.17944-1-yongxin.liu@windriver.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20201118025854.13455-1-yongxin.liu@windriver.com>

A driver can be loaded as a dynamic module or a built-in module.
In commit 681a67288655 ("usertools: check if module is loaded
before binding"), script only checks modules in /sys/module/.

However, for built-in kernel driver, it only shows up in /sys/module/,
if it has a version or at least one parameter. So add check for
modules in /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/modules.builtin.

Signed-off-by: Yongxin Liu <yongxin.liu@windriver.com>

 - Make code robust and more memory efficient.

 - Replace shell call with platform.uname(). Check file existence
   before reading.

 - Add built-in module list in loaded_modules for checking
   instead of removing error check.

 - fix git commit description style in commit log
 - fix typo spelling
