Description eloranta 1999-06-28 04:34:15 UTC
If one happens to create a driver object which
has accidentally left out the kernel_version definition
(note: at ld -r it gets declared as an external in
symbol table!)
then insmod core dumps when it tries to find out the
kernel version for which the driver was compiled.
It should check if the kernel_version symbol is defined
as an external or not. If it is then complain and
do nothing further.

This issue has been forwarded to a developer for further action.

Comment 2 Cristian Gafton 1999-07-28 06:19:59 UTC
insmod has no way of testing is a module is correct or not - it has to
walk blindly in the object structure and read whatever is there.
