Confirmed with a built-from-sources 4.8.5 on current master
(d2ff0ff2c23f). The ICE also happens with 4.6.4. With 8.1.0, however,
we get an error instead:

In file included from drivers/media/usb/dvb-usb/pctv452e.c:20:
drivers/media/usb/dvb-usb/pctv452e.c: In function 'pctv452e_frontend_attach':
./drivers/media/dvb-frontends/stb0899_drv.h:151:36: error: weak
declaration of 'stb0899_attach' being applied to a already existing,
static definition
static inline struct dvb_frontend *stb0899_attach(struct
stb0899_config *config,

Which seems to have been spotted by kbuild months ago:

The problem is in pctv452e_frontend_attach():

* dvb_frontend will call dvb_detach for both stb0899_detach
* and stb0899_release but we only do dvb_attach(stb0899_attach).
* Increment the module refcount instead.

Here symbol_get() is declaring a weak function (due to
!CONFIG_MODULES) while this definition in stb0899_drv.h occurs (due to

static inline struct dvb_frontend *stb0899_attach(struct stb0899_config *config,
struct i2c_adapter *i2c)
printk(KERN_WARNING "%s: Driver disabled by Kconfig\n", __func__);
return NULL;

I guess pctv452e should require CONFIG_DVB_STB0899, or similar. CC'ing
Mauro, Wolfgang, linux-media.

Hope that helps!
