Description of problem:
RHEL5.1 PV-on-HVM drivers packages installation fails due to a dependency

error: Failed dependencies:
        ksym(isa_irq_to_vector_map) = 3aed7527 is needed by kmod-xenpv-

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL5.1 Snapshot2 with the following PV-on-HVM drivers provided separately.

  - xenpv-3.1_15042-22.el5.ia64.rpm

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:
Installation fails.

Expected results:
Installation completes successfully.

Additional info:
isa_irq_to_vector_map needs to be added to the ia64 whitelist.

Comment 2 Stephen Tweedie 2007-08-16 19:50:18 UTC
Is there any more of an explanation why we need this?  "isa_irq_to_vector_map"
sounds very low-level for Xen drivers to be playing with.

Created attachment 161724 [details]
xenpv package fix.

.23 builds with the patch included available, please test.

I think we don't need that.  Xen just wants to know whenever the irq in
question is an ISA irq or not.	We don't need the map for that, just checking
the range (0x20 ->0x2f) is good enougth for that.

Comment 4 Gerd Hoffmann 2007-08-17 09:31:14 UTC
Please test whenever the new packages work without the symbol export.

Comment 5 Keiichiro Tokunaga 2007-08-21 16:55:15 UTC
I tested -23 on my box running snapshot1.  The installation of the packages
completed successfully without any dependency messages.


Comment 6 Gerd Hoffmann 2007-08-21 17:02:10 UTC
So we don't need the symbol, great!
