Description Frank Arnold 2005-09-21 08:37:35 EDT
Description of problem:

When a kernel gets installed on the system I see following warnings:
WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.13-1.1565_FC5/kernel/arch/ppc/oprofile/oprofile.ko
needs unknown symbol request_perfmon_irq
WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.13-1.1565_FC5/kernel/arch/ppc/oprofile/oprofile.ko
needs unknown symbol free_perfmon_irq 

include/asm-ppc/perfmon.h contains these symbols, but with my poor C knowledge I
can't figure out what's wrong here. It doesn't bother me anyway. Just want to
make sure it gets mentioned somewhere, because I'm seeing this for several
versions now. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
IIRC 2.6.13-1.1565_FC5, 2.6.13-1.1561_FC5, 2.6.13-1.1558_FC5
Comment 1 Frank Arnold 2005-09-28 16:46:38 EDT
Didn't appear anymore. A patch for perfmon.c by BenH was committed 5 days ago,
and a fix for this patch 5 hours ago. I assume that it's fixed now.
