It uses modprobe $TEST_DRIVER in sysctl.sh, so update
config to use "m" instead

What happens if it is a built-in? Can you elaborate in the changelog

On that note we might have other cases that do modprobe in scripts and
run into the same issue you are trying to solve. :)

thanks,

I double-checked again, found that it doesn't work on either with 
built-in or kernel module
if it's built-in, modprobe test_sysctl still return 0, so it doesn't 
matter it's a built-in or module.

but the problem is that test_modprobe check module load before modprobe 
execute , I'll sent a V2 patch to fix this and keep its build-in config 
untouched


if changes nothing

1) when  CONFIG_TEST_SYSCTL=y
root@intel-x86-64:/tmp/sysctl# ./sysctl.sh
Checking production write strict setting ... ok
./sysctl.sh: /sys/module/test_sysctl/ not present
You must have the following enabled in your kernel:
CONFIG_TEST_SYSCTL=y
root@intel-x86-64:/tmp/sysctl# zcat /proc/config.gz |grep TEST_SYS
CONFIG_TEST_SYSCTL=y



2) when CONFIG_TEST_SYSCTL=m
root@intel-x86-64:/tmp/sysctl# ./sysctl.sh
Checking production write strict setting ... ok
./sysctl.sh: /sys/module/test_sysctl/ not present
You must have the following enabled in your kernel:
CONFIG_TEST_SYSCTL=y
root@intel-x86-64:/tmp/sysctl# zcat /proc/config.gz |grep TEST_SYS
CONFIG_TEST_SYSCTL=m
