Its Linux with kernel 2.6.35 on Fedora 14 x86_64 machine. And yes thats
what I though too that only VLOG_DEFINE_THIS_MODULE should do the job as it
creates and the actual module as well as the reference.
I see that it is defined like this
#define VLOG_DEFINE_THIS_MODULE(MODULE) \
static struct vlog_module *const THIS_MODULE = &VLM_##MODULE
The 2nd line to create a reference works as its not a compile issue. The
linker cries which means that VLOG_DEFINE_MODULE(MODULE) failed to create
the module in the linker section as given by
#define VLOG_DEFINE_MODULE(MODULE) \
extern struct vlog_module *vlog_module_ptr_##MODULE; \
struct vlog_module *vlog_module_ptr_##MODULE \
__attribute__((section("vlog_modules"))) = &VLM_##MODULE
Any ideas now what might have happened? Could be it some sort of a version
mis-match for the GNU linker "ld"?
