2013-02-22depmod: pass -P $CONFIG_SYMBOL_PREFIXJames Hogan
On architectures which have symbol prefixes, depmod emits lots of warnings like this: WARNING: $module.ko needs unknown symbol $symbol This is because depmod isn't being passed the -P <symbol_prefix> arguments to specify the symbol prefix to ignore. This option is included since the 3.13 release of module-init-tools. Update scripts/depmod.sh to take extra arguments for the symbol prefix (required but may be empty), and update the main Makefile to always pass "$(CONFIG_SYMBOL_PREFIX)" to scripts/depmod.sh. If the provided symbol prefix is non-empty, scripts/depmod.sh checks if depmod --version reports module-init-tools with a version number < 3.13 otherwise it appends -P $SYMBOL_PREFIX to the depmod command line.

2012-01-23kbuild: do not check for ancient modutils toolsLucas De Marchi
scripts/depmod.sh checks for the output of '-V' expecting that it has module-init-tools in it. It's a hack to prevent users from using modutils instead of module-init-tools, that only works with 2.4.x kernels. This however prints an annoying warning for kmod tool, that is currently replacing module-init-tools. Rather than putting another check for kmod's version, just remove it since users of 2.4.x kernel are unlikely to upgrade to 3.x, and if they do, let depmod fail in that case because they should know what they are doing.

2011-07-12kbuild: Do not write to builddir in modules_installMichal Marek
Let depmod.sh create a temporary directory in /tmp instead of writing to the build directory as root. The mktemp utility should be available on any recent system (and there is already scripts/gen_initramfs_list.sh relying on it).

2011-06-09kbuild: Hack for depmod not handling X.Y versionsMichal Marek
depmod from module-init-tools < 3.13 and the busybox depmod check if the kernel release starts with <num>.<num>.<num>. To support these versions, we create a symlink with two numbers prepended. Signed-off-by: Michal Marek <mmarek@suse.cz>
2011-06-09kbuild: Move depmod call to a separate scriptMichal Marek
Do not bloat the Makefile with multiline shell statements. No user-visible change intended. Signed-off-by: Michal Marek <mmarek@suse.cz>
