Adam Zabrocki:

I see a lot code duplication there.

"Lost module:\nname[%s] module at addr[0x%lx] module core[0x%lx] with
size[0x%x] hash[0x%llx]\n",


As a non-literate in C programming I am not sure my suggestion makes
sense but could this log output be refactored into a shared function or

Not sure. I guess P_LKRG_INFO is OK because nobody but the most experts
will be able to deduce "system compromised" or anything from these
module load messages. But if they are, nothing is lost for them. Not
using P_LKRG_WARN might make it easier to add a dmesg log parser and/or
lkrg GUI showing only likely system compromise (or false-positive).

This looks excellent! Also git commit messages are very informative.

Will test soon and report if found any issues.

Kind regards,
