printk: use %pK for /proc/kallsyms and /proc/modules
Kees Cook [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:34:22 +0000 (16:34 -0700)]
In an effort to reduce kernel address leaks that might be used to help
target kernel privilege escalation exploits, this patch uses %pK when
displaying addresses in /proc/kallsyms, /proc/modules, and
/sys/module/*/sections/*.

Note that this changes %x to %p, so some legitimately 0 values in
/proc/kallsyms would have changed from 00000000 to "(null)".  To avoid
this, "(null)" is not used when using the "K" format.  Anything that was
already successfully parsing "(null)" in addition to full hex digits
should have no problem with this change.  (Thanks to Joe Perches for the
suggestion.) Due to the %x to %p, "void *" casts are needed since these
addresses are already "unsigned long" everywhere internally, due to their
starting life as ELF section offsets.
