Question file


I have built a custom kernel. One of the init functions is not listed in the file. To be specific, it is cpu_probe() in arch/xx/kernel/setup.c.
Is it so that every function of the kernel code needs to be there in the file?

*disclaimer* - i'm NOT a kernel hacker...

the file is created when the kernel is compiled. if a function is missing from the file, then what's probably happened is that there is an old file that's being used instead of the new one. the new file should be in the directory where you compiled your kernel from, and should be placed in the /boot directory.
