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 11:54:25 EDT
We (Red Hat) should try to fix this before next release.
Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-08-24 19:05:24 EDT
Reassigning to kernel - oopses are kernel problems.
