Subject: PROBLEM: building modules for 2.5.38 from source under 2.4.19 on x86 P4

[1. ] One line summary of the problem:
Updated check.c to fix `devfs_handle' undeclared error and
mtdblock_ro.c,
[2. ] Full description of the problem/report:
Compiling under Linux 2.4.19 resulted in errors which appear to be bugs
which I fixed:
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/src/linux-2.5.38/fs/partitions'
gcc -Wp,-MD,./.check.o.d -D__KERNEL__
-I/home/src/linux-2.5.38/include -Wall \

-DKBUILD_BASENAME=check -c -o check.o check.c
check.c: In function `devfs_create_cdrom':
check.c:365: `devfs_handle' undeclared (first use in this function)
check.c:365: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
check.c:365: for each function it appears in.)

check.c:342: warning: unused variable `dir'
check.c:341: warning: unused variable `pos'
make[2]: *** [check.o] Error 1

FIX: Defined "devfs_handle" in a second function, devfs_create_cdrom.

\
-DKBUILD_BASENAME=mtdblock_ro -c -o mtdblock_ro.o mtdblock_ro.c

FIX: Deleted syntax error cause, "names".

mtdblock_ro.c: In function `mtdblock_request':
mtdblock_ro.c:125: warning: int format, kdev_t arg (arg 2)
mtdblock_ro.c:143: `io_request_lock' undeclared (first use in this
function)

FIX: Defined "io_request_lock" in mtdblock_request function.
Elsewhere in code, there were function calls with "not enough
arguments"
and I added the missing argument (3 expected vs 2 given).

[7.6.] SCSI information (from /proc/scsi/scsi)
Attached devices: none

[7.7.] Other information that might be relevant to the problem
(please look in /proc and include all information that you
think to be relevant):

[X.] Other notes, patches, fixes, workarounds:
None - see sections 6, 7 above.
Well. Ok. My workaround was to drop it after fixing 5 bugs associated
with the
above report. I just downloaded linux-2.4.19.tar.gz and will rebuild
from this
one (even though I have 2.4.19 already, but I don't trust my source now
and I
need SCSI emulation to get the CD-RW applications running on my
system).

Thanks & Regards,

Art
