Onyx kernel module signature:
Code:
vermagic:       2.6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7 preempt mod_unload modversions ARMv7
My kernel module signature:
Code:
vermagic:       2.6.35.3-899-g9b1a262 mod_unload modversions ARMv5
So, as far as I understand, I need 3 things:
1. Turn on ARMv7
2. Turn on preempt
3. Manually correct 2.6.35.3-899-g9b1a262 -> 2.6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7
Out of curiosity (since I've been pondering compiling kernel modules in the future):
Are we talking about a plain vanilla 2.6.35.3 kernel tree here, or are there additional patches? (The http://opensource.onyx-international.com/ only contains an older 2.6.26)

Are all drivers in the mainline kernel, or are there binary modules that would stop someone from switching to a newer kernel?

Last, but not least: Does the current kernel support kexec?

Cheers!
