Description Manish Singh 2004-06-17 13:25:02 EDT
Description of problem:
find_first_bit and find_next_bit need the _sb_findmap table, but
that's not exported (in 2.4.21-15.EL and prior at least), so they
can't be used from modules. Fix is to
EXPORT_SYMBOL_NOVERS(_sb_findmap); in s390_ksyms.c, for both the s390
and s390x arches. This is already in 2.6 upstream, and accordingly it
looks like RHEL4 doesn't have this problem.

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

How reproducible:
Try to compile and load a module that uses find_first_bit or
find_next_bit (e.g., ocfs2)

A fix for this problem has just been committed to the RHEL3 U4
patch pool this evening (in kernel version 2.4.21-20.7.EL).
