Description of problem:
Following RHEL5 driver update program I have run a check on our .ko file (although it is built for RHEL4) and located 3 symbols that we use that are not on the KABI whitelists:
__cond_resched , kernel_flag , __might_sleep
My 1st question is whether these symbols can be added to the whitelists .
My 2nd question is whether there are is a whitelist for RHEL4 base release and lists of kernel API changes for RHEL4 updates.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
It is not possible to process this list currently, since it was generated
against a RHEL4 kernel. Please regenerate/retest against a RHEL5 kernel.
There are no lists maintained for RHEL4 that are public - the driver update
concept is new in RHEL5, to the extent that it is implemented this way. Please
feel free to ask me any further questions about it :-)
This is pretty old. Closing out due to inactivity. NetApp, please let me know if
this is still an active issue.
