SubjectSegmentation fault on modprobe depca
From
I 'm the maintainter of Trinity Rescue Kit (http://trinityhome.org/trk) ,
a live rescue distribution that tries (amongst many other features) to be
as generic as possible in terms of hardware detection. Therefore I include
all network and disk controller drivers in the kernel or as module.
I recently tried kernel 2.6.19 and stumbled upon the fact that the module
DEPCA seems to be broken. When I compile it in the kernel, the kernel
crashes at boot time. Compiled as module it creates a segmentation fault
on modprobe.
I 've tested compilation on two different systems: first is my TRK
workbench, which is a Mandriva 2005 with gcc 3.4.3-7mdk and
module-init-tools 3.0 (later upgraded to 3.2.2, recompiled kernel, but
same result). The other system I compiled and tried it on is an
out-of-the-box Mandriva 2007, which is quite new and has more recent
compilers and libraries. The result was the same.
When I do a "modprobe depca", even though there is no hardware that could
use this module (it 's for old DEC nics..), I get the following output:

[root@vmlinux ~]# modprobe depca
Segmentation fault
[root@vmlinux ~]#

This used to work in all of the older 2.6 kernels I 've tried before
(which are easily about 10 different ones). It still worked in kernel
2.6.18

The bug should be easily reproducable. If not, I can send my .config file
for any misconfiguration you might encounter.
