SubjectPROBLEM: 2.3.99-pre3 missing symbol tcp_v4_send_reset for ipt_REJECT

[1.] One line summary of the problem:

2.3.99-pre3 missing symbol tcp_v4_send_reset for ipt_REJECT

[2.] Full description of the problem/report:

I compiled the iptables and packet filtering support as
modules. Appearently the ipt_REJECT module has an unmet dependence to
tcp_v4_send_reset. AFAIU this symbol is exported by netsyms.c only for
some rare cases (IPv6, http accelleration...), which are not enabled in my

[3.] Keywords:

modules, networking, kernel, 2.3.99-pre3, iptables, tcp_v4_send_reset

[4.] Kernel version (from /proc/version):

Linux version 2.3.99-pre3 (root@tk147051)
(gcc version 2.95.2 20000220 (Debian GNU/Linux))
#1 Mon Mar 27 15:18:12 CEST 2000

[5.] Output

/lib/modules/2.3.99-pre3/ipv4/ipt_REJECT.o: unresolved symbol tcp_v4_send_reset

Probably not relevant, if someone can _not_ reproduce this problem, i
am sorry, please tell me, i will provide information about the

[X.1.] A patch:

The following patch to linux/net/netsyms.c solves the problem, but
i'm not enough a hacker to know what it does else... sorry.

< EXPORT_SYMBOL(tcp_v4_send_reset);
> #if defined (CONFIG_IPV6_MODULE) || defined (CONFIG_KHTTPD) || defined (CONFIG_KHTTPD_MODULE) || defined (CONFIG_NETFILTER)
> EXPORT_SYMBOL(tcp_v4_send_reset);
> #endif

[X.2.] Disclaimer:

This is my second kernel bug report. I learned a lot about bug report
style since then. If however it is still not satisfying, please tell

I tried to find out if someone else has already reported this
problem. I am sorry if so. I also did not check unofficial patches.
