Hotplug trying to load a module you've built into the kernel is harmless, what's
the oops and where did you see that?

Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-08-24 15:54:25 UTC
We (Red Hat) should try to fix this before next release.

Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-08-24 23:05:24 UTC
Reassigning to kernel - oopses are kernel problems.
