Description Joshua Giles 2006-06-16 13:28:56 EDT
Description of problem:
After a manual compilation of 2.4.21-44 kernel and upon executing:
"make modules_install"  I see a module with unresolved symbols:
"depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in
depmod:         .insw"

Config file was the "kernel-2.4.21-ppc64iseries.config"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.4.21-44 and 2.4.21-43
*Not a regression

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.make mrproper && make oldconfig && make dep boot modules modules_install
Actual results:
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in
depmod:         .insw

Expected results:
No symbol errors.

Additional info:
I'm not certain how often the sb1000 General Instruments Network card is on a
PPC Iseries, but this doesn't appear to be a high priority item at this stage.
Comment 1 Ernie Petrides 2006-06-16 17:01:56 EDT
Thanks, Josh.  Since this is not a U8 regression, I'm going to change
the product to RHEL (non-beta) and version to 3.

As an FYI to any developer who might look at this, the "sb1000" driver
is listed in the "kernel-unsupported" list.  The warning could be
addressed by disabling CONFIG_NET_SB1000 in one of the ppc64-specific
config files, or possibly by fixing up header file includes (it might
be that include/asm-ppc64/io.h is not getting pulled in).
Comment 2 Prarit Bhargava 2007-09-13 08:53:15 EDT

RHEL3 is closed.  I'm going to close this out at CANTFIX.
