I recompiled the kernel few weeks ago, but I don't recall what I changed exactly.

Now vmmon won't load. I also tried to recompile it, but nothing.
Code:

WARNING: //lib/modules/2.6.20/misc/vmmon.ko needs unknown symbol current_cap
WARNING: //lib/modules/2.6.20/misc/vmmon.ko needs unknown symbol current_uid
WARNING: //lib/modules/2.6.20/misc/vmmon.ko needs unknown symbol current_fsgid
WARNING: //lib/modules/2.6.20/misc/vmmon.ko needs unknown symbol current_gid

WARNING: //lib/modules/2.6.20/misc/vmmon.ko needs unknown symbol current_euid
WARNING: //lib/modules/2.6.20/misc/vmmon.ko needs unknown symbol current_fsuid                                   


I did a search with cscope in the linux kernel for those symbold and only found a few (the latest)
in the XFS file system, which I don't get what it has to do with vmmon.

Can anyone help with this?

Thanks in advance.
