This question already has an answer here:
I'm chasing a subtle ACPI bug on my laptop, and in the stack dumps I see that the kernel is "tainted"
[ 19.292943] CPU: 0 PID: 6160 Comm: Xorg Tainted: G OE 4.11.0-rc6+ #7
So I assume that some proprietary module is being loaded, and I want to make sure that the problem can be reproduced without this module being loaded.
I build the kernel from the staging kernel tree and I don't intentionally load any proprietary module, so actually it surprises me that the kernel is "tainted".
So, can I get the list of modules which actually make the kernel tainted?
