SubjectPROBLEM: pppoe.o module + socket filtering
[1.] One line summary of the problem:

When compiling pppoe as module and enable socket filtering, pppoe module
has unresolved symbols. Problem not solved by inserting ppp filter into

[2.] Full description of the problem/report:
I tried to compile kernel 2.4.20 with pppoe as module(CONFIG_PPPOE) and
socket filtering(CONFIG_FILTER) enabled.
When inserting the module I get

/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/net/pppoe.o: unresolved symbol

/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/net/pppoe.o: unresolved symbol
Using /lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/net/pppoe.o

When compiling PPP filtering into the kernel, I get (when trying to load
