2.4.3-5 - unresolved symbol in toshiba.o

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3-5 i686)
Description of problem:
While checking module dependencies athlon variant of the kernel 2.4.3-5
complains about unresolved symbols in toshiba.o. Not sure if i686 does
Also, my Viper chipset has been blacklisted for usb-uhci.o which fails to
load and complains about it. I hope this is no mistake, because that never
happened with 2.4.2-2 and earlier.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Booting 2.4.3-5.athlon on Viper chipset
Regarding the toshiba module: That module is disabled in the .config of the
athlon kernel, and should therefore not be in the RPM. Could you see with
rpm -qf <filename>
which rpm owns that file ?
Regarding the chipset blacklist: AMD has confirmed the chip doesn't work and
corrupts data if used.
I assume toshiba.o wasn't removed during update from i686 type to athlon one of
the same 2.4.3-5. I used rpm -Uvh --ignorearch --force. This was the only
option combination which worked. Without --force I just received tons on errors
and failure. It's too bad that such switching between kernels is so painful.
BTW, I think it makes sense to use /lib/modules/2.4.3-5.athlon
and /lib/modules/2.4.3-5.i686 to avoid conflicts and allow people to have both
versions at the same time.
