module: show version information for built-in modules in sysfs
Currently only drivers that are built as modules have their versions shown in /sys/module/<module_name>/version, but this information might also be useful for built-in drivers as well. This especially important for drivers that do not define any parameters - such drivers, if built-in, are completely invisible from userspace. This patch changes MODULE_VERSION() macro so that in case when we are compiling built-in module, version information is stored in a separate section. Kernel then uses this data to create 'version' sysfs attribute in the same fashion it creates attributes for module parameters.
