LTS kernel patch for Intel CPU vulnerability breaks nvidia driver
I am updating a couple machines that run the 4.14 LTS kernel. Today, 4.14.11 was released that closes the Intel CPU bug vulnerability. The nvidia driver builds and works fine on 4.14.10. However, the patch that closed the security flaw breaks the nvidia build: FATAL: modpost: GPL-incompatible module nvidia.ko uses GPL-only symbol 'cpu_tlbstate' This is nvidia driver 387.34 (64-bit.) There seems to be a bit of a panic right now about this CPU bug, and it kind of feels very important to run a fixed kernel, especially since one of the machines runs a couple VMs. Is there an advisory from nvidia on how to proceed? I feel this is important.

This is nvidia driver 387.34 (64-bit.) There seems to be a bit of a panic right now about this CPU bug, and it kind of feels very important to run a fixed kernel, especially since one of the machines runs a couple VMs.

Is there an advisory from nvidia on how to proceed? I feel this is important.

I ended up patching the kernel instead, which only requires a single edit in arch/x86/mm/init.c: EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(cpu_tlbstate); needs to be: EXPORT_SYMBOL(cpu_tlbstate); If you don't build your own kernels though, then patching the driver is necessary.

Interesting, the cpu_tlbstate symbol was GPL also in 4.14.10, and the compilation went fine

The nvidia driver is not linking to it explicitly, the kernel changes put this in the code for context switches. Or something like that...so it's used involuntarily.

Strangely I didn't need to patch either the kernel or the drivers to make 'em work. NVIDIA 384.98 + Kernel 4.14.12 work just fine.

"Kaiser" cpu vulnerability patch is included in the latest 4.15.x For the 4.14 there is related patch and that was also my question if it is enough to patch it with it: "buildfix_kernel_4.14.patch" to go for 4.15.x Regards Beny
