Description Pat Riehecky 2017-08-01 12:32:23 EDT
Description of problem:
Can the Fedora kernel provide an empty /lib/modules/$(version)/systemtap/ ?

This is the default location for systemtap to pull in taps for stapusr executed scripts.  By making the directory systems admins will not need to first run mkdir across their infrastructure.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):kernel-4.12.4-300.fc26

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.look for existing location to put systemtap kernel modules

Actual results:
Must first make the directory

Expected results:
Directory already exists

Additional info:
Something like this would be fine with me.
