FEAT RHEL5.2: Kernel Symbols for Driver Update Program (mca.ko ia64)
Last modified: 2013-07-04 19:49:16 EDT
We found a problem concerning kabi_whitelist when we trid to make a test
module of MCA handler.
[root@RHEL5-ss3 TMP5.1]# /usr/bin/python ./abi_check.py
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.0 ABI
WARNING: The following symbols are used by your module
WARNING: and are not on the ABI whitelist.
Both ia64_mca_printk and ia64_mlogbuf_dump are introduced by the patch here,
which are exported for use by a platform-specific MCA handler (which
registered via ia64_reg_MCA_extension), but are not on the whitelist.
So this couple of symbols needs to be added to the whitelist, ex. the
following changes are required:
A patch posted to rhkernel-list today.
Moving to 5.2.
Can we confirm this is in RHEL5.2. Kei, are you happy? I can see this in the CVS
head at the moment, but let's make sure it's cool with you before closing.
Don, can you set this MODIFIED if you're happy with it?
You can download this test kernel from http://people.redhat.com/dzickus/el5
I have confirmed the symbols are in the recent whitelist (ia64) and I am OK with
either closing this bug or setting it VERIFIED.
