FWIW deleting the offending modules cures the error message, but is obviously
not much help if anyone wants to use it :o)

Looks like a missing EXPORT_SYMBOL(gendisk_head) in genhd.c
Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2001-11-14 05:55:06 EST
Not quite; that symbol is not available for modules for a good reason:
there are access functions for the list in question which take care of proper
locking; evms accesses it directly while violating the locking rules for it....
IBM is fixing it in evms
