You do not need to apologize. 0day bot usually catches build errors.
I guess 0day bot performs compile-tests only incrementally
and that is why we did not get any report.

Without Module.symver, modpost cannot check whether references are
resolvable or not.

You will see "WARNING ... undefined" for every symbol referenced from
the module.


I am not an Android developer.
So, I will leave this judge to other people.




One more request if you have a chance to submit the next version.
Please do not hide error messages.

I wondered why you redirected stdout/stderr from the script.

I applied the following patch, and I tested. Then I see why.

Please fix your code instead of hiding underlying problems.
