The "proper" fix would be to reintroduce the ksym() dependencies, i.e.
make the KMPs depend on the kernel ABI checksums rather than the kernel
Which leads to another question: why do we still fight with kabi in
opensuse when we don't leverage from that?
That's a good question. I personally do not think that it makes sense to
keep the kabi in openSUSE.
It makes our lives easier in one side, but also makes hard in another
side. It means that we need to publish the kernel update and the
updates of the all KMPs in a shot. Otherwise it'll break the system.
To make it clear: Given the decision to drop ksym() dependencies, I do
not think it makes sense to keep the kabi. I would of course prefer
having the ksym() dependencies and maintaining the kabi.
And rpm / zypper doesn't detect it... (the
update of kernel won't be
blocked by the lack of KMP). Or was it already improved?
It does not detect it, because we enable multiversion for the kernel
packages by default.
