Description Michael-Luke Jones 2007-02-21 10:56:19 UTC
Most recent kernel where this bug did *NOT* occur: 2.6.20.1
Distribution: NSLU2-Linux
Software Environment: GCC 4.1.1 ARM Cross Compiler
Problem Description:
  GEN     .version
  CHK     include/linux/compile.h
  UPD     include/linux/compile.h
  CC      init/version.o
  LD      init/built-in.o
  LD      .tmp_vmlinux1
net/built-in.o: In function `svc_udp_recvfrom':
sysctl_net.c:(.text+0x79fb4): undefined reference to `__ipv6_addr_type'
make[1]: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1

Steps to reproduce:
Compile kernel with attached defconfig

Comment 2 Michael-Luke Jones 2007-02-21 10:59:10 UTC
Also see http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/2/21/76 (NB: I meant 2.6.21-rc1 not 2.6.20-rc1)
Comment 3 Michael-Luke Jones 2007-02-22 09:10:18 UTC
Apparently 'svc_udp_recvfrom' is an NFS function, so it looks like an NFS rather than an IPV6 issue.
Comment 4 Michael-Luke Jones 2007-02-22 09:22:45 UTC
Similar (but not identical) error on x86 with new defconfig (attached above)

New Error:
  GEN     .version
  CHK     include/linux/compile.h
  UPD     include/linux/compile.h
  CC      init/version.o
  LD      init/built-in.o
  LD      .tmp_vmlinux1
net/built-in.o: In function `svc_udp_get_sender_address':
svcsock.c:(.text+0x79754): undefined reference to `__ipv6_addr_type'
make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1

Comment 6 Trond Myklebust 2007-02-22 12:18:47 UTC
This is a server issue, so I'm reassigning to Neil. I do believe I saw a report
for this problem fly by on lkml yesterday, though, so I assume that a patch
is forthcoming.
Comment 7 Michael-Luke Jones 2007-02-25 15:10:14 UTC
Problem appears to be fixed upstream in net-2.6 tree.

For reference, here are the patches against 2.6.21-rc1 that fixed the MODPOST problem for us:

Thanks for help,
