[PATCH] /sys/modules: allow full length section names
I've been using systemtap for some debugging and I noticed that it can't probe a lot of modules. Turns out it's kind of silly, the sections section of /sys/module is limited to 32byte filenames and many of the actual sections are a a bit longer than that.
