Description Timo Kujala 2004-03-10 17:39:50 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6)
Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8

Description of problem:
memcpy_fromio and memcpy_toio are missing from kernel. Many modules,
including sound drivers refuse to load because of that. Seems that
nobody in the vmlinux uses them so linker leaves them out.

Current kernel: 2.6.3-2.1.253. Happened with .246 kernel too. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compile kernel with stock x86_64 options

Actual Results:  memcpy_fromio and memcpy_toio are not in vmlinux

Expected Results:  Well, they should be in vmlinux as drivers need it.

Additional info:

The precompiled kernel rpm suffers from this same problem.

Andi Kleen just sent a fix to this to Linus; we'll pick that up in a
day or two.
