Subjectkernel panic
Hi,
I am using the following makefile and the .c file to
generate a kernel module. I can load this module
without error and warning. But when I call ioctl()
from user application to run this module it gets
kernel panic!

I am using redhat 9.0 and kernel 2.4.20-8.

testmngmnt.c:
=============
This file has been attached with this mail.

Makefile:
=========
# set the approriate value for additional cflags
GCC_VER := $(strip $(shell gcc -dumpversion))
XTRA_CFLAGS =
ifeq ($(GCC_VER), 3.2.2)
XTRA_CFLAGS = -DRH_9_0
endif # GCC_VER
ifeq ($(GCC_VER), 3.2.3)
XTRA_CFLAGS = -DRH_9_0
endif # GCC_VER


CC = gcc
LD = ld
LDFLAG = -r
LINUX_VERSION = linux-$(shell uname -r)


CFLAGS = -g -Wall -DMODULE -O2 -D__KERNEL__
$(XTRA_CFLAGS) -DLINK_ETHERNET \
-I/usr/src/$(LINUX_VERSION)/include -I${INCLUDE}
-D__DEBUG__


dvr_objs = testmngmnt.o




test.o: ${dvr_objs}
ld -X -r -o test.o ${dvr_objs} ; \


testmngmnt.o: testmngmnt.c
${CC} ${CFLAGS} -c testmngmnt.c


clean:
rm -f *.o *~ include/*~


all: test.o
