Subject[PATCH] Athlon XP 1600+ and _mmx_memcpy symbol in modules
Hi,
I've just upraded from my old PII-400 system to an Athlon XP 1600+
based system so changed from "Pentium-Pro/Celeron/Pentium-II"
(CONFIG_M686) to "Athlon/Duron/K7" (CONFIG_MK7). In doing so I suddenly
saw a LOT of problems with modules and the symbol _mmx_memcpy being
undefined.

I finally kludged/fixed this by changing line 121 of
arch/i386/kernel/i386_ksyms.c from:

EXPORT_SYMBOL(_mmx_memcpy);

into:

EXPORT_SYMBOL_NOVERS(_mmx_memcpy);

That's on a vanilla 2.4.17 source tree.
