Kernel – 4.16-rc3 Released, and Still no NVIDIA Fix?

Kernel 4.16-rc3 is out, and brief details of post-rc2 changes are here:  http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1802.3/00500.html

I still cannot find any solution proposed for the ‘Unknown symbol swiotlb_map_sg_attrs‘ error with the latest NVIDIA drivers, despite posting brief details on the Developers Forum over a week ago..

  1. If you revert e07c8f81dbcc40cf753c9a969ffde507842914b3 or switch to using swiotlb_nr_tbl() and mark nv-frontend as GPL do you then encounter a warning with backtrace generated by afcc90f8621e289cd082ba97900e76f01afe778c as an unwhitelisted exposure of kernel memory from user_copy?

    • I assume this will eventually be fixed by NVIDIA, so I’m not spending more time on testing! TBH I’m not that much of an expert on ‘reverting’ stuff.
