Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 489096
install include/trace/*.h headers in kernel-devel
Last modified: 2013-03-06 01:01:11 EST
Description of problem:
systemtap's new direct kernel tracepoint support requires access to the
trace/*.h header files within the kernel-devel package. A .spec patch
is going into fedora very soon; the same thing just needs to be put into
This should moot bug #465543 by making the marker-conversion module unnecessary.
This should be a zero-risk change, since we're only asking to package a
few preexisting header files within the kernel-devel rpm. No source code
changes are contemplated.
