#12 Tracking potential kmods for c9s
Opened 2 months ago by jsbillings. Modified a day ago

I'd like to keep track of what would be a good target kmod package to build for c9s now that it has been tagged. Current packages will be included when appropriate.

One source of new kmods would be to diff the Kconfig from c8s to c9s and see what was removed/disabled.


The following packages are potential candidates for c9s. For all these kmods support for devices has been limited by RH:

kmod-aacraid
kmod-be2iscsi
kmod-be2net
kmod-hpsa
kmod-lpfc
kmod-megaraid_sas
kmod-mlx4
kmod-mpt3sas
kmod-mptsas
kmod-mptspi
kmod-qla2xxx
kmod-qla4xxx

I can take care of these.

Two potential kmods for c9s:

  • ntfs3 (added in 5.15)
  • rtw89 (added in 5.16)

As both kmods are fairly new let's wait some time and see if Red Hat adds these anyway.

In case it is required rtw89 might also be a candidate for c8(s). We already provide ntfs3 for c8(s).

Another potential kmod for c9s (of personal interest): acer_wireless

I opened a bug to get it enabled in el9: bz2025985

Hint: Once MR 163 is merged and part of the buildroot we should be able to build kABI tracking kmods for c9s.
