The drivers are checked with modprobe. If modprobe is not available
on the system, the checks are silently skipped.

v3: * Changed the docs according to the Cyril's comment
    * Added curly braces in tst_check_drivers.c
    * Added dry-run option to modprobe

v2: * moved tst_check_driver() from tst_test.h to tst_kernel.h
    * added the new option description to the doc and comment to tst_kernel.h
    * iterating over the driver list moved out from tst_check_drivers(), the
      function renamed accordingly.

I like this change as it allows to load module with parameters later.


Kind regards,
Petr

 CRC32c checksum generation is supported by LTP. In order to use it, the
 test should include "tst_checksum.h" header, then can call tst_crc32c().
 
+2.2.26 Checking kernel for the driver support
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+
+Some tests may need specific kernel drivers, either compiled in, or built
+as a module. If .need_drivers points to a NULL-terminated array of kernel
+module names these are all checked and the test exits with TCONF on the
+first missing driver.
+
+Since it relies on modprobe command, the check will be skipped if the command
+itself is not available on the system.
