debugfs : Unknown symbol debugfs_create_dir
I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 and i was trying to debug the kernel using debugs. I have compiled the kernel with required options like,

Kernel hacking[*] Magic SysRq key
Kernel hacking[*] Debug filesystem

I have written a module which include kernel linked list and kernel threads. The module works fine. Then i have added the debugfs code in the same module and i got the following error while inserting the module(i.e. during insmod command),


insmod: error inserting 'kll.ko': -1 Unknown symbol in module
I have checked dmesg and i found that the debufs calls like debugfs_create_dir are said to be unknown...

Now I'm stuck at this point.

Any pointers or help is welcome!!

Is your module GPLed?

Yup, it is already GPLed and the code,i.e. EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(debugfs_create_dir), exists in fs/debugfs/inode.c
