SubjectRe: nsdeps not working on modules in 5.4-rc1
ok - so to sum up, it sounds like you are saying the 350 false
positives (see attached file) that happen on building cifs.ko .will be
fixed by a
future change to modpost? This is a typical module build ...
download and install current kernel package (in this case Ubuntu
5.4-rc1). which saves huge amount of build time, then build just the
module of interest (in my case cifs.ko)

cd fs/cifs
make C=1 -C /usr/src/linux-headers-`uname -r` M=`pwd` modules

If nsdeps is not needed to fixup some namespace issue then shouldn't
be a problem, just trying to avoid the distraction of 300+
warning messages every time I build just this one module. Is there a
workaround?
