Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 629715
kernel ABI whitelist request for kspice-usb driver [Red Hat]
Last modified: 2016-11-25 07:57:21 EST
Description of problem:
We are shipping a kspice-usb driver on the RHEL6.0 Supplementary media. This driver is not currently in-tree, though it may be in due course. Of the 70 symbols required by that module in the current instance, the following symbols are not on the approved whitelists and would, ideally, be added to aid in our packaging and distribution of this module (both x86_64 and i686 have been checked and are the only targets required):
Note that usb_alloc_urb is already on the whitelist. The exact ABI use of these drivers for i686 and x86_64 is attached to this bug.

Verified on kernel-2.6.32-118.el6, move status to verified.
