SubjectRe: drbd 8.0.2/3 doesn't load under kernel 2.6.21
I'm making an assumption that depmod is somehow to blame and have 
logged this as a kernel bug,

>>It turns out I was adding the web100 patch ( to
>>the 2.6.21 kernel and that's what causes the symbol resolving problem
>>below. Adding the corresponding version of the web100 patch to the
>>2.6.20 kernel makes this problem appear there as well. On fresh
>>versions of the kernel, this problem does not occur. At the moment,
>>it's not possible to have a current kernel that contains both drbd
>>and web100.
>>>On a 64-bit Gentoo system with Gentoo's 2.6.21 kernel, drbd 8.0.2/3
>>>complains when I try to load the module:
>>>[ 134.141363] drbd: Unknown symbol cn_fini
>>>[ 134.141399] drbd: Unknown symbol cn_init
>>>It works fine when I compile it and load in the previous kernel
>>>version, 2.6.20 and the symbols are present in the map file
>>>./ t cn_fini
>>>./ t cn_init
>>>I am c'cing the kernel mailing list because this appears to be a
