utf8data.h_shipped has a large database table which is an auto-generated
decodification trie for the unicode normalization functions.
It is not necessary to load this large table in the kernel if no
filesystem is using it, hence make UTF-8 encoding loadable by converting
it into a module.

Modify the file called unicode-core which will act as a layer for
unicode subsystem. It will load the UTF-8 module and access it's functions
whenever any filesystem that needs unicode is mounted.
Currently, only UTF-8 encoding is supported but if any other encodings
are supported in future then the layer file would be responsible for
loading the desired encoding module.

Also, indirect calls using function pointers are slow, use static calls to
avoid overhead caused in case of repeated indirect calls. Static calls
improves the performance by directly calling the functions as opposed to
indirect calls.

Changes in v7
  - Update the help text in Kconfig
  - Handle the unicode_load_static_call function failure by decrementing
    the reference.
  - Correct the code for handling built-in utf8 option as well.
  - Correct the synchronization for accessing utf8mod.
  - Make changes to unicode_unload() for handling the situation where
    utf8mod != NULL and um == NULL.

Changes in v6
  - Add spinlock to protect utf8mod and avoid NULL pointer
    dereference.
  - Change the static call function names for being consistent with
    kernel coding style.
  - Merge the unicode_load_module function with unicode_load as it is
    not really needed to have a separate function.
  - Use try_then_module_get instead of module_get to avoid loading the
    module even when it is already loaded.
  - Improve the commit message.

Changes in v5
  - Rename global variables and default static call functions for better
    understanding
  - Make only config UNICODE_UTF8 visible and config UNICODE to be always
    enabled provided UNICODE_UTF8 is enabled.  
  - Improve the documentation for Kconfig
  - Improve the commit message.
 
Changes in v4
  - Return error from the static calls instead of doing nothing and
    succeeding even without loading the module.
  - Remove the complete usage of utf8_ops and use static calls at all
    places.
  - Restore the static calls to default values when module is unloaded.
  - Decrement the reference of module after calling the unload function.
  - Remove spinlock as there will be no race conditions after removing
    utf8_ops.

Changes in v3
  - Add a patch which checks if utf8 is loaded before calling utf8_unload()
    in ext4 and f2fs filesystems
  - Return error if strscpy() returns value < 0
  - Correct the conditions to prevent NULL pointer dereference while
    accessing functions via utf8_ops variable.
  - Add spinlock to avoid race conditions.
  - Use static_call() for preventing speculative execution attacks.

Changes in v2
  - Remove the duplicate file from the last patch.
  - Make the wrapper functions inline.
  - Remove msleep and use try_module_get() and module_put()
    for ensuring that module is loaded correctly and also
    doesn't get unloaded while in use.
  - Resolve the warning reported by kernel test robot.
  - Resolve all the checkpatch.pl warnings.

This help text seems to contradict itself; it says "it is not necessary to carry
this large table in the kernel", and then later it says that in some cases it is
in fact necessary.

It would also be helpful for the help text to mention which filesystems actually
support this feature.

This spinlock should be 'static'.

"UTF-8 module" is the text that will appear in menuconfig and other
configuration utilities.  This string not very helpful to describe what
this code is about or why it is different from NLS_utf8.  People come to
this option looking for the case-insensitive feature in ext4, so I'd
prefer to keep the mention to 'casefolding'. or even improve the
original a bit to say:

tristate: "UTF-8 support for native Case-Insensitive filesystems"

Other than these and what Eric mentioned, the code looks good to me.  I
gave this series a try and it seems to work fine.

It does raise a new warning, though

/home/krisman/src/linux/fs/unicode/unicode-core.c: In function ‘unicode_load’:
/home/krisman/src/linux/include/linux/kmod.h:28:8: warning: the omitted middle operand in ‘?:’ will always be ‘true’, suggest explicit middle operand [-Wparentheses]
   28 |  ((x) ?: (__request_module(true, mod), (x)))
      |        ^
/home/krisman/src/linux/fs/unicode/unicode-core.c:123:7: note: in expansion of macro ‘try_then_request_module’
  123 |  if (!try_then_request_module(utf8mod_get(), "utf8")) {

But in this specific case, i think gcc is just being silly. What would
be the right way to avoid it?

Thanks Gabriel and Eric for your reviews.

There are two possible things that we can do here to suppress the warning

1. Disable the warning using pragma with something like this :-

#pragma GCC diagnostic push
#pragma GCC diagnostic ignored "-Wparentheses"
     if(!try_then_request_module(utf8mod_get(), "utf8"))
#pragma GCC diagnostic pop


2. Add the following in fs/unicode/Makefile

KBUILD_CFLAGS += $(call cc-disable-warning, parentheses)
But this would disable the warning for the complete unicode subsystem 
which doesn't seem to be right.
It would also disable some other crucial warning generated by Wparantheses.

What do you think about the first option? I am not sure if this is the 
right way to fix this.
