Description diego.santacruz 2004-01-09 15:30:30 UTC
Description of problem:

When attepting to rebuild the kernel RPM (from the .src.rpm) the
dmi_broken symbol exported from arch/i386/kernel/dmi_scan.c is not
versioned, leading to unresolved symbols in the powernow-k7 module

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.4.22-1.2140 (but also previous releases)

How reproducible:

Additional info:

I tracked the problem to the fact that the lm_sensors patch adds
another file named dmi_scan.c in drivers/i2c/. Since both dmi_scan.c
files export symbols the modversioning stuff picks only one, and that
happens to be the i2c one (at least on my machine).

I solved the problem by renaming the i2c dmi_scan.{c,h} files to
i2c-dmi_scan.{c,h}. Although there is maybe a saner approach?
Patch next.

Proposed patch: rename i2c dmi_scan.{c,h} to i2c-dmi_scan.{c,h}

The patch is really simple, but has the drawback on renaming the module.

On a second thought, maybe it's better to upgrade the lm_sensors
kernel patch? Currently is a 2.6.5, which is really old. Or is it too
much work?

Later lm_sensors/i2c have the same behaviour. By coincidence I posted
on the same day about this on the lm_sensors list:


I just verified the same for FC1 2174 kernel and lm_sensors/i2c 2.8.4.

BTW patched FC1 kernels with recent lm_sensors/i2c support and the
matching lm_snesors userland bits can be found at ATrpms.net at the
cost of breaking powernow-k7.o
