Bug: error "unresolved symbol _mmx_memcpy" for *all* hsf modules after
successful compile and depmod -a. Not only hsf modules, but also many
other standard modules, too many to list.


Compaq 700EA notebook, AMD Duron 869 MHz, HSFi Linmodem, thanks to Marc
his HSFi driver worked.


Kernel.org 2.4.18 source compiled for Intel support ("make xconfig"),
which worked perfectly for hsf.

Subsequently: Recompiled and reinstalled kernel with AMD K6 support.

The hsf modules and thus the modem continued to work, even after a

Because of Marc's driver update of 24 May 2002:

Recompiled and hsfconfiged new hsflinmodem.


During "depmod -a", not only *all* hsf drivers, including the one that
had worked previously, gave: "unresolved symbol _mmx_memcpy" and would
not load. But also modules such as soundcore, sound and cram.

Recompiled and hsfconfigured old driver, which had previously worked
with the same result.


Recompile kernel with no AMD support, but normal Intel support.
