Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 19862
unresolved symbols in sr_mod
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:30 EDT
I compiled kernel-2.2.16-22 which ships with redhat 7.0 with support for
scsi as modules (when possible).
Everything compiled ok but when loading sr_mod.o it complained about an
unresolved symbol (req_finished_io).
It seems that symbols req_new_io and req_finished_io are not exported...
I solved the problem by adding the following lines to the end of
#if CONFIG_SCSI == m
Sorry if this bug was already reported but I couldn't find anything related
At least you look for reports... others don't. See Bug #18032 :-]
Also seeing this bug ... thanks for the patch, Bruno, I'll try it now.
That patch definitely worked! Thanks... now my IDE CD-RW drive is back in
People, are you kidding?! (that is to RedHat)
I reported this bug already for rawhide, see bug id 16174
I wrote about it to sct also, I provided a patch for a patch (this
is in -sard patch, for the beginning of it's "life"). And this issue
is still with us, and errata 2.2.17-14 also contain it!
I'm curious at the end -- why so trivial issue must take so long time
to resolve (and ever amount of that long time still unknown...)??? :)))
Why it's SO hard to solve this?!?!?
BTW, proposed here patch will not work in all cases -- it basic scsi
support built in but e.g. sr_mod itself (scsi_generic) is module
(this is what I tried here recently).
Just export the symbols unconditionally: there's no need to worry about making
it conditional on the SCSI subsystem being modularised.
That's almost exactly the same as I proposed to do at my initial
bugreport... :) -- the only difference is that i was not shure
if some additional symbols should also be exported (no them
shouldn't as it seemed to be).
