Description Bernie Innocenti 2002-12-26 12:36:11 EST
Building with devfs fails because of an error in fs/devfs/base.c: 
in function is_devfsd_or_child(), the conditional code should be 
erased or commented away because RH kernel already includes 
the patch which removes the p_opptr field from task_struct.
Comment 1 Bernie Innocenti 2003-04-02 12:38:19 EST
The bug is still present in 2.4.20-8 shipped with RedHat 9. 
Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2003-04-11 09:29:27 EDT
devfs doesn't work in RHL and is turned off as a result.
