Hi there!

I try to compile my driver for 2.6.0-t1.

I can insmod 2 modules out of 3, and i dont know why the 3rd fails.

Changes I did for 2.6.0-t1 to my driver:
 - added -DKBUILD_MODNAME=<name>
 - renamed MINOR() to minor()
 - removed MOD_INC/DEC_USE_COUNT
 - removed MODULE_PARM*

---------------------------------
A module thats working:
gcc:
gcc -Wall -O3 -finline-functions -Wstrict-prototypes -falign-functions=4

-D__KERNEL__ -DMODULE -DEXPORT_SYMTAB -DKBUILD_MODNAME=working -c working.c -o
working.o

insmod:
# insmod ./working.o

--------------------------------

What is wrong with the not_working.o?
And do I have to use try_module_get(mod) & module_put(mod) since
MOD_INC/DEC_USE_COUNT are deprecated?
What about the MODULE_PARM? any replacement?

Sorry if I'm asking already answered questions.

Regards,
Martin
