Certainly malicious kernel modules and drivers could cause arbitrary mischief! But I am curious what added complication you see with non-malicious kernel modules (as opposed to non-malicious kernel drivers.
The rcutorture module is an example of a kernel module that is (more or less) non-malicious, and rcu_barrier() seems to work OK for it.
Please let me know what I am missing!
