Description Matt Domsch 2008-01-02 17:44:45 EST
Description of problem:
The kernel does not use CONFIG_MODULE_SRCVERSION_ALL=y, which prevents modules
that don't use MODULE_VERSION() tags from getting a srcversion field in their
modinfo.  DKMS uses the srcversion field to determine if a module is exactly the
same or not.  It would benefit from having srcversion enabled for all modules. 
Ubuntu and openSUSE enable this option.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I would like to see this enabled for F7, F8, rawhide, and RHEL kernels as well.

Ping.  How can I help this along?
Comment 3 Jarod Wilson 2008-03-18 23:28:09 EDT
Not seeing any reason we can't at least flip it on in rawhide and see what
happens there... Okay, flipped it on.
Comment 4 Jon Masters 2008-03-19 04:42:25 EDT
But last I heard davej wasn't running modpost/building modversions. I should
check what's currently going on there in rawhide - been a bit busy with RHEL :)
