Description Lee Merrill 2004-08-20 13:37:26 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
Using insmod to install a module does not put the .bss and .sbss
symbols in /proc/ksyms.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. insmod myModule.o
2. cat /proc/ksyms
3. No .bss symbols are shown...

Actual Results:  I saw .text etc. symbols, but not .bss or .sbss ones

Expected Results:  I should have seen the .bss and .sbss symbols

Additional info:

It's an easy fix! In insmod.c, in the section_names[] array, there is
a missing comma between ".bss" and ".sbss".

This probably won't ever be fixed for FC, as FC2 and later need new
modutils code for 2.6 kernels. The patch has been sent upstream though
- thanks for the report!
