Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 477643
Module Vendor and Build Host checking is done on kernel RPM modules
Last modified: 2014-03-25 20:55:57 EDT
Description of problem:
Vendor and Build Host checks of driver modules are run on modules from
the kernel RPM. These checks are only necessary for modules that are
not from the kernel RPM.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
HTS 5.3 R11
Created attachment 327672 [details]
This patch changes the vendor and build host check so that there are only done on
modules that do not come from the kernel RPM. The logic is that if a module is found in /proc/modules that does not come from the kernel RPM, the following tests are performed:
- if the OS being certified is RHEL 4, it fails
- otherwise, the ABI whitelist is checked. If the module does not conform, it fails
- otherwise, the vendor and build host are checked. If these tests indicate the module was not built be Red Hat, it fails.
