thanks geert, this already helped a lot, but know i don't get any further. may
be you have another solution for this in your pocket?
in kernel/exit.c, there is a function defined called "release_task", which is
used by arch/mips/kernel/irixsig.c .
the problem is, that the symbol is not exported. i inserted an
"EXPORT_SYMBOL(release_task);" into exit.c after the function, and inserted
exit.o in the export-objs list in the kernel/Makefile, and "extern static void
release_task(...)" into arch/mips/kernel/irixsig.c
the problem is, that the linker is still unable to find the symbol when linking
does anyone know, what i did wrong? its a regular misunderstanding in using the
export-objs list by me, i think.
i already tried putting exit.o at the beginning and at the end of the list in
kernel/Makefile, i didn't removed it from the obj-y list
