Hi Aaron,

Thanks for your patience as I slowly work through a large swath of emails :-)

Anyway, this looks fine to me. A going module's text should be (or
soon will be) rw anyway, so checking for going modules in the ro
case should be enough.

Rusty, if you give your ack for the second patch, I can apply both
patches to my modules-next branch. I'll also incorporate Steven's
suggestion for a comment explaining why going modules shouldn't be
converted to ro in this context.

Hi Jessica,

Have you pulled these in? I haven't noticed them in linux-next.

I currently have this queued up for 4.10. I'm still clearing up some
(unrelated to this patch) maintainership transition questions, but
expect the new modules tree to be pushed out and included in -next
by this week.
