Description Keith Owens 2000-03-10 08:53:06 UTC
linux-2.2.12-symversion.patch changes the smp and bigmem symbol prefixes
from _smp, smp2gig_ and 2gig_ by removing the trailing '_'.  This breaks
modutils and ksymoops, both of which expect the trailing '_'.  I can see no
good reason for this patch, it is incompatible with the standard kernel and
every other distribution.  It also breaks binary only modules that were
compiled against the standard kernel, although I do not really care about
those.  Please backout linux-2.2.12-symversion.patch on 6.0 and 6.1.

Now historical. Newer systems got rid of the 2g stuff and use -smp as a general
convention as with the community. Thus this bug seems stale
