Subject: wish: build time warning for missing MODULE_LICENSE
Date: Sun, 30 Mar 2008 21:01:19 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

I just fixed a bug where I had accidentally removed a MODULE_LICENSE() 
from a file.

The problem is that such bugs are currently not discovered until someone 
actually runs a kernel with this module loaded.

Could we get a build time warning/error for a missing MODULE_LICENSE?



       "Is there not promise of rain?" Ling Tan asked suddenly out
        of the darkness. There had been need of rain for many days.
       "Only a promise," Lao Er said.
