I have a couple of minor bugs in the latest code (with nodev=y).
arch/i386/Rules.mk specifies –Werror -, and a
few modules have warnings (might be my gcc version [3.3.2]…).
-fno-builtin -fno-common -fno-strict-aliasing -O3 -iwithprefix
include -Wall -DMONITOR_BASE=0xFC500000 -fomit-frame-pointer
-I/home/barry/xen/xen/include -D__KERNEL__ -Wno-pointer-arith -Wredundant-decls
-m32 -march=i686 -DNDEBUG -DNO_DEVICES_IN_XEN -c schedule.c
schedule.c:666: warning: `process_timeout'
defined but not used”
I fixed the problem by removing –Werror
2) in setup.c – with nodev=y, in
my environment I have no modules that have any __init code in them. The do_initcalls routine doesn’t work properly in this
case, and tries to call the first one before checking that there are no more…
I fixed the problem by moving the do_initcalls into
the conditional code for handling devices. I am not sure why you are not seeing
the same problem.
