I read the information you provided, thank you very much. I as already
familiar with all except the bugzilla entry. However, I still do not know
exactly what kind of thing breaks the kABI, so I would not know how to
identify the problem areas in the patch. Besides that, is updating the kABI
a solution, or not? How the kABI mechanism works is not clearly explained
from the documentation I have been able to find. Is there some
documentation that describes it for kmod developers?
