I'm making an assumption that depmod is somehow to blame and have logged this as a kernel bug, http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8829 > >>It turns out I was adding the web100 patch (http://www.web100.org) to >>the 2.6.21 kernel and that's what causes the symbol resolving problem >>below. Adding the corresponding version of the web100 patch to the >>2.6.20 kernel makes this problem appear there as well. On fresh >>versions of the kernel, this problem does not occur. At the moment, >>it's not possible to have a current kernel that contains both drbd >>and web100. >> >>>On a 64-bit Gentoo system with Gentoo's 2.6.21 kernel, drbd 8.0.2/3 >>>complains when I try to load the module: >>> >>>[ 134.141363] drbd: Unknown symbol cn_fini >>>[ 134.141399] drbd: Unknown symbol cn_init >>> >>>It works fine when I compile it and load in the previous kernel >>>version, 2.6.20 and the symbols are present in the map file >>> >>>./System.map-genkernel-x86_64-2.6.21-gentoo-r2:ffffffff802935aa t cn_fini >>>./System.map-genkernel-x86_64-2.6.21-gentoo-r2:ffffffff8029362a t cn_init >>> >>>I am c'cing the kernel mailing list because this appears to be a >>>problem with how any module accesses symbols in the kernel, not just >> >drbd.
