Regarding the PR/38724, can we change the path to "/kmods/" or something like that? Would be good to have meaningful name before it gets used widely.


Prior art:

Solaris:                        /kernel,
Linux (OpenSuSE 10.2 here):     /lib/modules/$(uname -r)

I don't know about other systems, but checking on FreeBSD and Mac OS X may be worthwhile.

/System/Library/Extensions on OSX - I doubt we want that ;)

My gut feeling tells me that to support easy switching/testing of kernels, the kernel version should be in the path.

I agree. Since we already mimic Solaris in other ways we may as well do it here too.

have fun
