Subject: nf_reject_ipv4: module license 'unspecified' taints kernel


With today's linus tree, I got below kmsg:
[   23.545204] nf_reject_ipv4: module license 'unspecified' taints kernel.
[   23.551886] Disabling lock debugging due to kernel taint

It could be caused by below commit:

commit c8d7b98bec43faaa6583c3135030be5eb4693acb

    netfilter: move nf_send_resetX() code to nf_reject_ipvX modules
    Move nf_send_reset() and nf_send_reset6() to nf_reject_ipv4 and
    nf_reject_ipv6 respectively. This code is shared by x_tables and
    Signed-off-by: Pablo Neira Ayuso <>

I believe there's similar issue for ipv6 reject part though I have disabled ipv6
in my .config.

Let me know if you need any furthur information.
