Description of problem:
cqphealth driver installed on Compaq ML350 server and working properly on original kernel 2.4.2. Installed update package for kernel 2.4.9 to address
known security bug. The updated kernel identified a bug while loading old and new version of cpqhealth module. Kernel diagnostic provided below.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Linux 7.1 with kernel-2.4.9-6 (i586) running on Compaq ML350 server with installed cpqhealth driver either version 2.1.0 or 2.2.0
2. Attempt to boot
3. Kernel bug report will be generated and the cpqhealth module will fail to initialize (as reported by lsmod) or operate.
4. Kernel boot will complete and system will be usable, minus wellness driver functionality.
Actual Results: System in operation without health driver functionality. Obvious symptom, fan always at high speed.
Expected Results: The upgraded kernel should not have failed to properly initialize the module

As we don't ship this module, could you point me to the source of it so I can
have a look at what it does ?
I also tried to send the message logs for the failure, but my proxy blocks that. Do you need this? Should I post it here?
This does not have sourcecode for the module unfortionatly, and google shows no
code anywhere which makes this look like a binary only module; Only Compaq can
help you with that.
