Description Patrizio Bassi 2008-07-24 20:32:49 UTC
the paravirt check was added due to gpl-only exported symbols, but now needed ones are back to be loose included.


since 2.6.22

infact my 2.6.26 copy includes:
EXPORT_SYMBOL    (pv_mmu_ops);

please remove the unneeded check from ebuild, it stops amd64 users from using vsmp option

Agreed, this can go. I have applied your patch to both the existing 173.14.09 and to the new 173.14.12 committed for bug #233418. Thank you for your contribution to Gentoo Linux :)
