@mhussain yes it will boot ok, at least for me. CONFIG_MODVERSIONS is unset, but I belive (I will try it), it will work even with CONFIG_MODVERSIONS enabled.

hi there,
once this is compiled, will it now boot?
is the CONFIG_MODVERSIONS setting set to false in the config file?
if not how would I go about changeing this setting?
thanks for any help you may have! :)

does dkms not work on linux-git ? i cannot get virtualbox to work on 4.9.rc4 with the same error as blinkallthetime was getting

There is rc4 but still need to disable CONFIG_MODVERSIONS option, because the patch does not make it yet

I disabled CONFIG_MODVERSIONS in the default configs and it should boot now.

Sorry for the breakage.

Thank you for the tips. I'll give this another go once a few DRM fixes (possibly interesting for me) get pulled by Linus.

it is known issue. You need to disable CONFIG_MODVERSIONS option

some more info:

here is a patch ( I guess it will be part of next rc (rc4)

When trying to boot linux-git I'm getting lots of:

module_name: no symbol version for __put_user_4
module_name: Unknown symbol __get_user_4 (err -22)

I'm dropped to an emergency shell and the only way to regain control of the machine is to hard power off.

I've tried googling and searching the kernel bug tracker but I didn't find anything that seems to fit this problem so it might be something with my setup.

Any ideas of what could be wrong?

While creating packages " linux-git" & linux-git-headers" there are warnings:

==> WARNING: backup entry file not in package : etc/mkinitcpio.d/linux-git.preset
