[PATCH 0/6] pre-run hooks for depmod alternatives

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


This patch series adds a "pre-run hook" feature for depmod alternatives.  An
alternative's pre-run hook is a shell command which depmod will run just before
processing the alternative.

This will be used by Ksplice Uptrack in order to synchronize its module
directory with the directories in /lib/modules.  A hook gives us the
flexibility we need, without pushing the synchronization logic into
module-init-tools.

The patches also fix some minor bugs in my previous code.

As before, please feel free to contact me with any questions.
