PostPosted: Mon Jul 07, 2014 12:35 am    Post subject: Kernel modules not loaded after upgrading from 3.4.95-gentoo Reply with quote

I'm trying to upgrade from kernel 3.4.95-gentoo to 3.4.96-gentoo. I emerged gentoo-sources, copied old configuration file as .config into the kernel sources directory, and then issued make oldconfig && make && make modules_install, followed by emerge @module-rebuild. I've been doing that since version 3.4.61 and I never had any problems.

This time, the kernel and its modules build without errors, but after I boot the new kernel the necessary modules are not loaded. In the previous kernel version (3.4.95-gentoo) I got:

Code:
> lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by
asb100                  8979  0
hwmon_vid               2209  1 asb100
nvidia               4658414  22
snd_ens1371            12827  4
snd_ac97_codec         85309  1 snd_ens1371
ac97_bus                 707  1 snd_ac97_codec
snd_rawmidi            14151  1 snd_ens1371
snd_seq_device          3957  1 snd_rawmidi
snd_pcm                50985  3 snd_ac97_codec,snd_ens1371
snd_page_alloc          5382  1 snd_pcm
snd_timer              13515  2 snd_pcm
snd                    38172  12 snd_ac97_codec,snd_timer,snd_pcm,snd_rawmidi,snd_ens1371,snd_seq_device
i2c_viapro              4360  0
soundcore               3995  1 snd

When I'm trying to boot my new kernel OpenRC complains that it can't access the sound card and that lm_sensors cannot be started. The system eventually stars, but lsmod doesn't list any modules. When I try to modprobe the modules by hand no errors are reported, but lsmod still doesn't list anything and the sound card and lm_sensors don't work. The module files are in the expected location (/lib/modules/3.4.96-gentoo/).

My kernel configuration is available at http://pastebin.com/SrYKeQtq. I have no idea what's happening, I can rule out hardware failure because everything works with the old kernel and in Windows. I skimmed through the 3.4.96 changelog, but didn't see anything that could be related to the issues I'm having. That's to say, any help would be appreciated. Am I missing something obvious here?

I don't know if it's relevant, but I don't really know what kind of information I can provide, so here's my emerge --info (from the working 3.4.95-gentoo kernel):

Did you do a "make modules" between "make" and "make modules_install"? If not, the modules were probably not compiled newly, but the old module files copied to the new location. I don't know how this can explain the symptoms, but anyway:

Code:

make oldconfig
make all
make modules_install
make install


"make all" compiles kernel and modules.

I'm afraid that's not the reason. Simply issuing "make" builds both the kernel image and the modules:

Code:
> make oldconfig
  HOSTCC  scripts/basic/fixdep
  HOSTCC  scripts/kconfig/conf.o
  SHIPPED scripts/kconfig/zconf.tab.c
  SHIPPED scripts/kconfig/zconf.lex.c
  SHIPPED scripts/kconfig/zconf.hash.c
  HOSTCC  scripts/kconfig/zconf.tab.o
  HOSTLD  scripts/kconfig/conf
scripts/kconfig/conf --oldconfig Kconfig
#
# configuration written to .config
#

> make
(...) [kernel image is compiled]
Setup is 15408 bytes (padded to 15872 bytes).
System is 2356 kB
CRC 82aacd79
Kernel: arch/x86/boot/bzImage is ready  (#1)
  Building modules, stage 2.
  MODPOST 21 modules
(...) [42 lines follow as the modules are compiled]

> make modules
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `relocs'.
  CHK     include/linux/version.h
  CHK     include/generated/utsrelease.h
  CALL    scripts/checksyscalls.sh
  Building modules, stage 2.
  MODPOST 21 modules


that is, nothing else happens after issuing "make modules". I installed these modules anyway, but after rebooting into the new kernel the issue still persists.

I'm going to try to build a vanilla kernel later to see if it changes anything.

Like Apheus said, it's no "make modules" but "make modules_install"

Sorry I wasn't clear. What I did was:

1. make oldconfig
2. make
3. make modules
4. make modules_install
5. copy kernel image and System.map to an appropriate location and edit bootloader (lilo) configuration
6. boot the new kernel.

Number 4 is what I meant by "I installed these modules anyway". So I actually followed Apheus' initial suggestion.

I'm having exactly the same problem - System uname: Linux-3.4.95-gentoo-i686-AMD_Athlon-tm-_64_X2_Dual_Core_Processor_4400+-with-gentoo-2.2

Did a bisect between v3.4.95 and v3.4.96 vanilla kernels and the first bad commit ended up as https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git/commit/?id=d3007333170435135f0620fb52386aad3fb2a14f

Tried the 3.15.3 vanilla kernel and modules loaded OK. I am going to try the 3.10 line next to see if problem persists.

One odd thing I discovered while testing was that stracing the modprobe command got the modules to load e.g. "strace modprobe k8temp" and the module loads OK - without the strace it would not load.

Oh, I did not test it, but skimmed through "make help". I guessed it would be included in "modules_install", but is not. I did not think about inclusion in "make". But what use is "make all" anyway if there is no difference to "make"?

I compiled vanilla 3.4.96 and 3.4.97 kernels from kernel.org, and I'm still having the same problem.

Yes, it also works like this in 3.4.97.

Who should we report this issue to? Should we bug gentoo-sources maintainers first, or maybe report that directly to kernel devs?

I did a bit more investigating and I think its a kernel problem so I bug reported it to the Kernel Bug Tracker https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=79661. Hopefully someone who understands the code will see it.

Have a work around if you want it - I placed the patch below in /etc/portage/patches/sys-apps/kmod-17/broken-finit_module.patch and re emerged sys-apps/kmod. Patch is applied via epatch_user. Now just need to remember to remove it when the underlying problem is fixed in the kernel.

That's good to know. Your bug report is much better than mine would have been. Also, thanks for the patch, but I think I'll just stay with 3.4.95-gentoo for the time being and see how the situation develops.

EDIT: this bug has been fixed upstream in 3.4.101.
