I tried building against the full source tree from the kernel srpm. This
works before a "make modules" in this tree has created the Module.symvers
file. Afterwards it does not anymore, the error being exactly the one
I posted yesterday.
Removing this file from the tree from the kernel-devel RPM has the same
effect: building an unpatched openafs-1.4.2 against this tree now works.
I guess there is no Module.symvers in your kernel tree? And hence no
build problems with GPL-only symbols? And no modversions either, but
that's no problem since you build specifically for each kernel?
But isn't loading such a module supposed to fail? Is it only in this
special case that it doesn't, because of the "weak" definition of
tasklist_lock in the AFS module and/or because of the fallback to
