lib: rename TEST_MODULE to TEST_LKM
The "_MODULE" suffix is reserved for tristates compiled as loadable kernel modules (LKM). The "TEST_MODULE" feature thereby violates this convention. The feature is used to compile the lib/test_module.c kernel module. Sadly this convention is not made explicit, but the Kconfig code documents it. The following code (./scripts/kconfig/confdata.c) is used to generate the autoconf.h header file during the build process. When a feature is selected as a kernel module ('m'), it is suffixed with "_MODULE" to indicate it. switch (*value) { case 'n': break; case 'm': suffix = "_MODULE"; /* fall through */ This causes problems for static code analysis, which assumes a consistent use of the "_MODULE" suffix. This patch renames the feature and its reference in a Makefile to "TEST_LKM", which still expresses the test of a LKM.
