If I patch a kernel with the UML patch, run "make config" and enable
all of the UML options I want and then do a "non-ARCH=3Dum" build and
then an ARCH=3Dum build (with the required make deps, cleans, mrpropers,
etc. in-between), can I use the modules (non-device-specific modules
only of course) from the non-ARCH=3Dum build with the ARCH=3Dum build?
In other words, is there any difference in the resulting modules
between UML kernel builds and non-UML kernel builds?
Just for reference, I am working on modifying the Mandrake installer
to install into a UML, cleanly, just like it does on real hardware --
minus all of the real hardware type steps like disk partitioning etc
(more on that in another e-mail, later, once I have done some more
reading). I want to promote that Mandrake include this functionality
on their install CD and being able to dual-use the modules between
standard installs (on real systems) and UML installs would go better
for convincing them that it's worth it.
