Description of problem:
To lock the module insmod will open the file read/write. I think that it should not open it for write.
Won't a read-lock do everything that's needed?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
The locking isn't to prevent overwriting of the module, it's to
prevent multiple concurrent attempted installs of the same module. So,
any sort of read lock wouldn't work here.
Considering the purpose of the lock, closing. I suppose any changes
with it need taken upstream.
