Policy for kernel modules ?
I'd like to package the u2fs alternative UFS filesystem module. The
source consists of a patch to the kernel sources (additions to include and
config files) and a new directory ./fs/u2fs for the kernel. The resulting
binary is a kernel module.
Is there a policy how to handle such kernel module packages, esp. such
involving patches to kernel source files ? The joystick package doesn't
need to patch the kernel...
[PS: A newbie question: What do I have to do to compile the module so
that it can be used with an existing kernel-image ?]
