Can't load lpfc kernel module


Hello all. I'm trying to get an Emulex fiber channel card working under -current with kernel 5.4.30. The card is recognized but the module is failing for some reason.

Code:
1c:00.0 Fibre Channel: Emulex Corporation Zephyr-X LightPulse Fibre Channel Host Adapter (rev 02)
        Subsystem: Emulex Corporation Zephyr-X LightPulse Fibre Channel Host Adapter
        Kernel modules: lpfc
The output of dmesg|tail

Code:
[ 1177.027693] lpfc: Unknown symbol nvme_fc_rescan_remoteport (err -2)
[ 1177.027774] lpfc: Unknown symbol nvmet_fc_register_targetport (err -2)
[ 1177.027804] lpfc: Unknown symbol nvmet_fc_rcv_fcp_req (err -2)
[ 1177.027830] lpfc: Unknown symbol nvmet_fc_unregister_targetport (err -2)
[ 1177.027852] lpfc: Unknown symbol nvme_fc_unregister_remoteport (err -2)
[ 1177.027905] lpfc: Unknown symbol nvmet_fc_rcv_fcp_abort (err -2)
[ 1177.027950] lpfc: Unknown symbol nvme_fc_unregister_localport (err -2)
[ 1177.027967] lpfc: Unknown symbol nvmet_fc_rcv_ls_req (err -2)
[ 1177.027998] lpfc: Unknown symbol nvme_fc_register_remoteport (err -2)
[ 1177.028027] lpfc: Unknown symbol nvme_fc_register_localport (err -2)
Any ideas? Thanks.

A kernel compile has fixed the problem. The controller and drive are recognized.

Code:
[    9.327659] Emulex LightPulse Fibre Channel SCSI driver 12.4.0.0
[    9.351216] Copyright (C) 2017-2019 Broadcom. All Rights Reserved. The term "Broadcom" refers to Broadcom Inc. and/or its subsidiaries.
Code:
[   12.958502] scsi 6:0:0:0: Sequential-Access IBM      ULTRIUM-TD4      BBH4 PQ: 0 ANSI: 3
[   12.960657] st 6:0:0:0: Attached scsi tape st0
[   12.960672] st 6:0:0:0: st0: try direct i/o: yes (alignment 4 B)

Were you trying to load the module into the huge kernel? If so, that's probably why. Some modules won't work, and there's no easy way around it.
