Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 239508
FEATURE: Add ability to specify alternate /proc/modules file
Last modified: 2008-04-03 03:27:38 EDT
Description of problem:
--show-deps sets a flag to ignore /proc/modules completely, but if we would like
to know what commands would be run when a previous or alternate set of modules
was loaded, then we need to provide the alternate contents of /proc/modules. A
command line argument to specify an alternate path for /proc/modules is
relatively simple to implement.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Patch that actually works.
How sad that I failed to compile and test my patch. My humble apologies.
This patch has been compiled and tested.
