    Subject2.6.12-rc1-mm3: class_simple API
    I'm really sorry for bringing such a "flame-creative" topic to the list,
    but Greg asked me to do so after a short discussion in private.

    Problem is that the latest bk-driver-core patch included in the 2.6.12-rc1-mm3
    removes class_simple API without providing EXPORT_SYMBOL'ed (as opposed to
    EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL) alternative.

    As the result I don't see a way how out-of-the-kernel non-GPL drivers
    (nvidia in my case) could be fixed.

    So, basically the questions are:

    - Whether the changes like the one above are "the right thing to do" ?
    - What's the best way to deal with this particular issue ?


    P.S. Please CC me, I'm not subscribed to the list.

    With best wishes,
