Bug ID: 1089720
Summary: Can't build out of kernel drivers if using vanilla
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Distribution
Version: Leap 15.0
Hardware: x86-64
OS: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Kernel

Build Identifier:

We have several out of kernel drivers. They build and run fine on the 4.12
kernel that comes on Leap-15 Beta-197.1. However when we build and run a
vanilla kernel from on Leap-15 and then try to build our drivers
against it, the build fails.

make -C /lib/modules/4.16.2-lcrs/build SUBDIRS=$PWD
make[1]: Entering directory '/usr/src/kernels/4.16.2-lcrs'
CC [M] /home/markh/work/pcirtom-linux/driver/rtom.o
In file included from /home/markh/work/pcirtom-linux/driver/rtom.c:29:0:
./include/linux/kernel.h:6:10: fatal error: stdarg.h: No such file or directory
#include <stdarg.h>

compilation terminated.

The vanilla kernel is built and installed like has been done forever via:
#make -j#
#make modules_install install

I figured out what I had to do to get these out of kernel modules to compile. I
have to explicitly include "-I/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/7/include/".

I have no idea how the kernel handles this but Leap-15 seems to have prohibited
it from happening correctly in all but against the 4.12 Leap-15 kernel.

I suspect this is not intentional. I also suspect it is a bug somewhere. Never
in the history of using opensuse have we had to explicitly make this include in
an out of kernel driver.

Reproducible: Always
