[PATCH v2] ACPI / device_sysfs: Use OF_MODALIAS for "compatible" modalias
From: Kai-Heng Feng
Date: Tue Jan 19 2021 - 05:00:54 EST
Commit 8765c5ba1949 ("ACPI / scan: Rework modalias creation when
"compatible" is present") may create two "MODALIAS=" in uevent file if
conditions are met.
This breaks systemd-udevd, which assumes each "key" in uevent file is
unique. The internal implementation of systemd-udevd overwrites the
first MODALIAS with the second one, so its kmod rule doesn't load driver
for the first MODALIAS.
Right now it doesn't seem to have any user relies on the second
MODALIAS, so change it to OF_MODALIAS to workaround the issue.
Fixes: 8765c5ba1949 ("ACPI / scan: Rework modalias creation when "compatible" is present")
