Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 438720
Export smp_call_function_single on x86_64
Last modified: 2009-06-19 22:58:41 EDT
The situation is that SGI's x86_64 platforms were just
recently LSPP security certified with RHEL 5. As a result
of this, a number of our DoD customers (and integrators) want
to switch to RHEL, but they require all of the SGI Propack
Portions of the ProPack layered software were not ported
to RHEL until we knew the security certification would be
completed. We unfortunately overlooked that
is *not* exported on x86_64 (although it is in 2.6.20).
Obviously, DoD is an important SGI customer (largest I believe).
The one line patch with the export is upstream at:
I will attach the backport to 2.6.18-86 shortly---I seem to be
hitting something with git I don't understand.
Alan Cox has ACK so far.
