Function call

x86: stack and caller but kernel maybe regpara(3)

sysdeps/x86_64/dl-machine.h: -> _start ->_dl_start->/elf/dl-sysdep.c:83:_dl_sysdep_start->dl_main


Why complier can manipulate the address of vriables?
What is the address in lds(??) file?


  • if no .config, every config tools make a .config from scrach!
  • oldconfig just for new moduels patch merged in trunk. This no any relations to .config.old and /boot/config.x.y.z
  • make localmodconfig will reduce many unused kernel config.
  • make bzImage #kmods will not build that configured with M!
  • make modules_install INSTALL_MOD_PATH=/home/firo/kmods
    ##build signle kernel module
    make menuconfig
    make oldconfig && make prepare
    make -C $(pwd) M=/home/firo/linux/fs/ext3 modules V=1
    make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=/usr/bin/arm-linux-gnu- drivers/pcmcia/sa11xx_base.o

    Compile construction

    ##Generating optimized code
    ##Symbol table

  • less
    When you compile the kernel
    nm vmlinux
    readelf -s

  • /proc/kallsyms
