Description Lee Yarwood 2010-06-17 09:07:57 EDT
Description of problem:
Documentation regarding bonding module options for debug output are incorrect for RHEL5.5

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


How reproducible:
Checked that the bonding module does not provide a debug option.
# modinfo bonding | grep debug

Actual results:
No debug option present in the bonding module.

Expected results:
Either a debug option in the bonding module _or_ no debug listed in the documentation.

Additional info:
I'm not sure if this a bonding 'bug' (lack of debug) or just old documentation that was not updated...
Comment 1 Douglas Silas 2010-07-13 07:48:28 EDT
grep -i debug $(rpm -ql kernel-doc |grep bonding)

...gives no results. The debug option has evidently removed, so this looks like a documentation fix.

Andy, is the fix to simply remove debug from the list of bonding module options in the Deployment Guide? 


Comment 2 Andy Gospodarek 2010-07-13 20:15:02 EDT
The documentation needs to stay, as I see the bonding option in the code and on a running system:

[gospo@quad rhel5.5.z]$ grep debug drivers/net/bonding/bond_main.c 
int debug = 0;
module_param(debug, int, 0);
MODULE_PARM_DESC(debug, "Print debug messages; 0 for off (default), 1 for on");

# modinfo bonding | grep debug
parm:           debug:Print debug messages; 0 for off (default), 1 for on (int)
# cat /etc/redhat-release 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.5 (Tikanga)
# uname -rp
2.6.18-194.el5 x86_64

please check to see that you are running 5.5 and reopen if needed.
