[Emulex 5.6 bug] kABI whitelist request for lpfc
Last modified: 2011-01-13 16:07:27 EST
Description of problem:
The last-submitted LPFC driver version 188.8.131.52.3p for RHEL5.5 inclusion, uses the following symbols that will need to be added to the RHEL5.5 kabi_whitelist:
This is the output of the abi_check.py script:
# ~/abi_check.py lpfc.ko
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 ABI Checker
ABI Checker version: 1.2
WARNING: The following symbols are used by your module
WARNING: and are not on the ABI whitelist.
We are at the end of RHEL 5.5. Unfortunately this isn't going to make it. Deferring to 5.6.
The following symbols are used by LPFC driver version 184.108.40.206.1p for RHEL5.6 inbox inclusion. These symbols will need to be added to the RHEL5.6 kernel api whitelist. (This check was done against the RHEL5.5 GA kernel)
Please can you let me know whether you are making this request solely because you intend to have this driver included *within* the RHEL5.6 kernel? If this is the case, this is not a bug, because we do not need all symbols for all internal drivers to be on the whitelist. The drivers internally are self-consistent. Please update this bug, or close it accordingly. Thanks.
