Hi -

I'm preparing the next 11.3 kernel update and working out the details
for the kABI. Most of the changes are internal and can be safely
ignored. I've worked around a few others that couldn't be, but these
last two remain:

KABI: symbol simple_fill_super(vmlinux) changed crc from 0x49a93819 to
0x14875b1
9
KABI: symbol usb_buffer_map_sg(vmlinux) lost
KABI: symbol usb_buffer_unmap_sg(vmlinux) lost

I get the impression that there are no users for the usb functions. Is
it safe to ignore those, Greg?

The simple_fill_super change I think needs to be reverted. I seems like
it was changed for correctness and doesn't actually fix a bug.

Hi,

the current openSUSE-11.3 kernel is not compatible with nvidia and ati KMPs:

$ rpm -ivh --test
ati-fglrxG02-kmp-default-8.741_k2.6.34.0_12-28.1.x86_64.rpm
nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-default-256.35_k2.6.34.0_12-14.1.x86_64.rpm
nvidia-gfxG01-kmp-default-173.14.27_k2.6.34.0_12-22.1.x86_64.rpm 2>&1 |
grep 'kernel('
kernel(default:drivers_pci) = adeb70553a74fa43 is needed by
ati-fglrxG02-kmp-default-8.741_k2.6.34.0_12-28.1.x86_64
kernel(default:arch_x86_kernel_acpi) = 59664e86a426f5a6 is
needed by ati-fglrxG02-kmp-default-8.741_k2.6.34.0_12-28.1.x86_64
kernel(default:drivers_pci) = adeb70553a74fa43 is needed by
nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-default-256.35_k2.6.34.0_12-14.1.x86_64
kernel(default:drivers_pci) = adeb70553a74fa43 is needed by
nvidia-gfxG01-kmp-default-173.14.27_k2.6.34.0_12-22.1.x86_64


But it might be a bug in the scripts and not an actual kabi change, I'm
looking into it right now.

Michal
