Description greg hosler 2003-03-29 11:17:28 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
The kernel oprofile modules contains references to cpu_possible
which is only defines in include/asm-i386/smp.h, and include/asm-x86_64/smp.h,
making it impossible to build an oprofile kernel module for a UP kernel w/o
getting the following error message from depmod:

depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in   
depmod:         cpu_possible

specifically, the following files reference cpu_possible():


cpu_possible() needs to be defined in such a manner that the UP kernel builds
will compile these modules w/o undefined references.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. on a UP machine, make xconfig, and enable profiling
2. build kernel, and modules, and module_install
3. observe the error message "*** Unresolved symbols in   
depmod:         cpu_possible"


Actual Results:  unloadable oprofile module

Expected Results:  a loadable oprofile module

oprofile has other issues for UP as well, that's why disabled it
