Re: kern/41195 (NetBSD 5 RC3 can't load kernel modules)

Synopsis: NetBSD 5 RC3 can't load kernel modules

i can reproduce this problem quite easily.

you can work around it by passing "-A /netbsd" (or your real kernel image)
to modload.

the difference is that /dev/ksyms has absolute symbols, and /netbsd has
data/text symbols, and ld(1) doesn't like that.

i tried applying this change from ad@ but it did not change the error:

Module Name:    src
Committed By:   ad
Date:           Fri Dec  5 21:38:10 UTC 2008

Modified Files:
        src/sys/kern: kern_ksyms.c
        src/sys/sys: ksyms.h

Log Message:
Make the fake ELF object work with gdb.

- Output a .bss section and make all the symbols relative to it, instead
  of making them absolute.
- Output a single load section, no need for two.

'gdb /dev/ksyms' still doesn't work because ksyms doesn't do mmap yet.
