Description of problem:

The kernel symbols __generic_copy_to_user __generic_copy_from_user  
defined in the usercopy.c file in the kernel are

any modules using these symbols isn failing to get loaded.

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2004-01-19 03:17:00 EST
these functions don't even exist in this kernel.
Can you give an URL to the source of the module in question so that we
can see and help fixing ?
Comment 2 anand suvernkar 2004-01-19 05:03:10 EST
This is the file that defined the above functions.


The functions copy_to_user , direct_copy_to_user calls this library

I find the symbol in the /proc/ksyms for smp kernel but not for
the hugemem kernel
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2004-01-19 05:05:28 EST
Please come back when you can answer the questions about the URL for
the source and such and not before that.
Comment 4 anand suvernkar 2004-01-19 05:14:08 EST
I have the source from the redhat RHEL 3.0 disk number 3
The package is
Comment 5 Arjan van de Ven 2004-01-19 05:15:19 EST
I meant the source of your (obviously GPL) module, not the kernel source.
