Missing drivers/usb/serial/option.ko in kernel 2.6.40-4.fc15.i686
Last modified: 2011-08-24 09:52:12 EDT
Description of problem: Missing drivers/usb/serial/option.ko
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.6.40-4.fc15.i686, probably also PAE and x86_64
How reproducible: Verify contents of kernel RPM
Steps to Reproduce:
[root@lin modules]# ls -l
drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 Jul 14 14:13 22.214.171.124-35.fc15.i686
drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 Aug 2 21:42 2.6.40-4.fc15.i686
[root@lin modules]# find . -name option.ko
Actual results: option.ko only in 126.96.36.199-35.fc15.i686, not in 2.6.40-4.fc15.i686
Expected results: option.ko in both kernels
Additional info: CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_OPTION is defined in config-generic of 2.6.40-4.fc15.i686, so why the option.ko module is missing? Maybe this is somewhat related to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=697122 ???
[vopicka@lin SOURCES]$ pwd
[vopicka@lin SOURCES]$ grep CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_OPTION config-*
this got inadvertently changed to built-in. I'll change it back to modular for the next update.
Please are you sure it works properly when compiled into kernel? Not only that my scripts choked on missing option.ko, but also my CDMA modem is horribly slow with 2.6.40-4.fc15.i686 and preforms normally with 188.8.131.52-35.fc15.i686. I have tried about 6 times with each kernel and CDMA was always much slower with 2.6.40-4.fc15.i686.
OK, for the time being I am running 184.108.40.206-35.fc15.i686 and waiting for the next kernel update.

It appears that kernel-22.214.171.124-0.fc15.i686 fixes this for F15. Not only tha the option.ko module is back, but also my CDMA modem runs at usual speed again. Thank you.
