No, we've seen 2 versions of the patch, no word from Andi, and nothing
upstream that I saw. Andi?

Chris Wright a rit :



Seems Linus tree includes a fix from Andi, check commit
6c977aad03a18019015035958c65b6729cd0574c

Probably good enough for 2.6.21.2 ?

Yes, the queue's there, just not ready to go yet. There's still bits that were
for sent for to .21 and are applicable to .20 (which I'm wading through ATM).

thanks,

Why? Is there an in-kernel use for that export?

I sincerely dont know... Although:
- * NOTE: CONFIG_PARAVIRT is experimental and the paravirt_ops
- * semantics are subject to change. Hence we only do this
- * internal-only export of this, until it gets sorted out and
- * all lowlevel CPU ops used by modules are separately exported.

Makes me think there was a "good enough" reason to export instead of export GPL and that it "could" be usefull to keep the same behaviour for that same experimental feature under 2.6.20 / 2.6.21. Although, the "until it gets sorted out" makes me think it might planned to get removed before the end of 2.6.22

Thnx.
