RE: Why is the deferred initcall patch not mainline?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


The answer is pretty easy, I think.  I tried to mainline it once but failed, and didn't really try again. If it is being found useful,  we should try to mainline it again,  this time with more persistence.  The reason it got rejected before IIRC was that you can accomplish a similar thing with modules, with no changes to the kernel. But that doesn't cover the case where the loadable modules feature of the kernel is turned off, which is common in very small systems.

During the ELCE 2014 in Duesseldorf in Chris Hallinan's talk [1] there
has been the unanswered question why the deferred initcall patch [2]
isn't mainline, yet.

Anybody remembers?
