Can anyone see major problems with requiring the same toolchain
version for building external modules as the kernel?
If gcc is updated between Fedora kernel versions and someone wants to
build a module, it would build but be unuseable? If that is true, then
gcc updates should just be released at the same time as a kernel built
with them to finesse the issue.
I suspect that this would be a rare issue in practice. Oops, I forgot
about rpmfusion, where they do build modules, and akmod which builds
modules automatically when a new kernel is released. That would make
it more likely to occur, I think.
