Kernel module standards



I was asked by Warren to post the standards that I use for building
kernel modules, so here they are.

> %{!?kernelroot: %define kernelroot "" }

When building a kernel for multiple archs it's handy to have the
kernel/kernel-devel package for the archs all installed at the same
time. While UP/SMP/hugemem/Xen kernels can be installed on the same
root, two UP kernels for different archs cannot. The way I get around
this is to install the kernel in /$arch, then pass '--define
"kernelroot /$arch"' to rpmbuild. In this way I can build the module for
all archs in one go instead of having to deal with switching kernels in
and out, *PLUS* it still builds properly if someone just does 'rpmbuild
-bb kernel-module-foo.spec' provided they have the kernel-devel package
for the kernel they're running.

> %{!?kernelversion: %define kernelversion %(uname -r) }

Like above, except this is used for selecting between parallel-installed
kernel versions.

> %package %{kernelversion}

Yes, it's ugly, but it does allow multiple copies of a module to be
installed, one per kernel version.

> Provides:       %{name} = %{version}

I'm sure this will come in handy one day...

The attached script is how I invoke rpmbuild to build it on FC3/i386.
It's easy enough to modify it for other archs/distros, I just haven't
needed to as of yet.
