Hi,

With the new commit 15bfc2348d54 ("modpost: check for static
EXPORT_SYMBOL* functions") we get a lot of warnings on ARCH=um builds:

WARNING: "rename" [vmlinux] is a static EXPORT_SYMBOL
WARNING: "lseek" [vmlinux] is a static EXPORT_SYMBOL
WARNING: "ftruncate64" [vmlinux] is a static EXPORT_SYMBOL
[...]
see https://p.sipsolutions.net/7232995f34907b9d.txt


This hack fixes *most* of them:


(but obviously just serves to give you an idea of what's going on).


With that, only two remain for me:

WARNING: "__guard" [vmlinux] is a static EXPORT_SYMBOL
WARNING: "__stack_smash_handler" [vmlinux] is a static EXPORT_SYMBOL

and I think that's because they don't even exist at all, so arguably the
code shouldn't export them, but I didn't find a way to detect at build
time if -fstack-protector was enabled or not?

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
johannes

Thanks for the report.

I think this should work:
https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/patch/1131017/

It fixes "__guard" and "__stack_smash_handler" too.


Thanks.
