Progress

What's been done

  • device-asus-tf101 builds

What's been attempted

  • Tried to build two kernels.

timduru's KatKiss kernel

Builds failed due to devtmpfs not being used in the Android ROM this was taken from. It appears to be missing code related to kern_path_create. See:

  • dev/drivers/base/devtmpfs.c <- source of error
  • include/linux/namei.h <- place where kern_path_create is defined in more recent kernels but apparently not in this one
  • another file I've forgotten ...

Attempted to fix by copying the declarations for kern_path_create from the mainline kernel. Fix failed because this was much too small a change to solve the problem.

novaspirit's kernel

Fails, multiple definitions of return address found in several files under arch/arm/kernel. No effort has been made yet to solve this problem, so this kernel is still in contention.

Next steps

Fix novaspirit's kernel, or try a newer kernel.
