Description Michal Jaegermann 2001-12-15 02:00:58 EST
Description of Problem:

After recompilation of a kernel cofigured for Alpha-Nautilus
'make modules_install' complains about unresolved symbols
irongate_ioremap and irongate_iounmap for a number of modules.
This module list includes such "exotics" like tulip and support
for X.  The problem is that ioremap and iounmap symbols are
redefined in include/asm-alpha/core_irongate.h but new symbols
are not exported.

An attached patch ensures that required symbols are exported.
Possibly "|| CONFIG_ALPHA_GENERIC" is not required here but this
was not tested.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

kernel-source-2.4.9-12

Comment 2 Michal Jaegermann 2001-12-20 02:23:39 EST
A condition in the attached patch should really be

#ifdef CONFIG_ALPHA_IRONGATE

A patch like that, for 2.4.17rc2, was posted on linux-kernel list.

Alpha is no longer a supported platform
