Hello everyone,

I am trying to write a device driver which calls
certain kernel functions and variables(e.g
ipv4_explicit_null defined in 
/usr/src/linux/net/mpls/mpls_init.c). but when i try
to insmod it gives an error saying unresolved symbol
for each of the reference.

thinking that these symbols were not exported by the
kernel i added EXPORT_SYMBOL in everyfile where these
symbols are defined. I can now see that particular
symbol in System.map.But it still does not work

I am not sure this indicates correct export of the
said symbol and if so what else should i do to fix
insmod the problem.

please advise

thanks in advance
