Updated for 5.14. Module compiles but (as usual) I have no way of testing it.

Thanks Jonathan! It's nice to know that the 390 driver is in such capable and attentive hands. Haven't tried the new patched-for-5.14 build yet on Arch, but have no doubt that it will work. (Already manually patched and working on Slackware-current here.)

Re: nvidia-390xx AUR package discussion thread

Hello,

Looks like the good old Nvidia driver 390.144 is reaching the end of its days.

I have experimented a bit with the 5.14 kernel. It has a new config option

CONFIG_BPF=y

If CONFIG_BPF is enabled, loading the nvidia driver on boot fails:

Sep 04 11:50:01.776227 gerd-desktop kernel: failed to validate module [nvidia] BTF: -22
Sep 04 11:50:02.022670 gerd-desktop kernel: BPF:[99862] TYPEDEF  
Sep 04 11:50:02.022780 gerd-desktop kernel: BPF:type_id=97039
Sep 04 11:50:02.022813 gerd-desktop kernel: BPF: 
Sep 04 11:50:02.022842 gerd-desktop kernel: BPF:Invalid name
Sep 04 11:50:02.022904 gerd-desktop kernel: BPF:

Problem seems to be an invalid (or empty) name entry

Sep 04 11:50:02.022842 gerd-desktop kernel: BPF:Invalid name

however, there does not seem to be anything related in the sources.

At a first glance, this looks a bit similar to the problem described for kernel 5.13 and the crc32 driver but there, it looks like this driver has an empty BPF record whatsoever.
Hence, the suggested patches Part 1/2 and part 2/2 just handle empty BPF records, and they appear to already be included in Kernel 5.14.1.
Is there something I can do about

Sep 04 11:50:02.022842 gerd-desktop kernel: BPF:Invalid name

as well?

Thank you very much in advance for all helpful thoughts,
DAC324
