Howdy folks... hopefully I'm not asking a terribly stupid question, but I have
read the FAQ, and everything I could find. Can't resolve this simple issue,
and I'm hoping someone out there knows the (probably) very simple answer:
I'm trying to get kernel profiling enabled, but my kernel modules cannot
resolve the mcount symbol.
I built a 2.4.5 kernel, with the profile patch, and I turned on kernel mcount
profiling. I used gcc-2.95.3, with the appropriate regparm patch applied.
When I check the System.map for this kernel, I can see that the mcount symbol
does indeed exist. And I can see in the modules that they have an unresolved
mcount symbol there. And yet, when I boot the kernel, the modules cannot
resolve the mcount symbol. I checked /proc/ksyms and mcount is not listed
Any ideas why this might be happening?
