Default Bug#582810: add symlink for vmlinux to /boot

Package: linux-2.6
Severity: normal

Hi,

The systemtap tool, when executed, searches for the vmlinux image in /boot/.
The currently shipped vmlinux image in Debian is with the -dbg package that
installs it into /usr/lib/debug.

Could you please handle a symlink to /boot for vmlinux ?

This is required for systemtap. I have manually verified it by creating
the symlink and it works.

Without it, following error is seen:

00:52:38 rrs@champaran:/usr/share/doc/systemtap-doc/examples/process $
stap -v -e 'probe vfs.read {printf("read performed
"); exit()}'
Pass 1: parsed user script and 68 library script(s) using
49924virt/20852res/1740shr kb, in 130usr/10sys/135real ms.
semantic error: missing x86_64 kernel/module debuginfo under
'/lib/modules/2.6.34-1-amd64/build' while resolving probe point
kernel.function("vfs_read")
semantic error: no match while resolving probe point vfs.read
Pass 2: analyzed script: 0 probe(s), 0 function(s), 0 embed(s), 0
global(s) using 50532virt/21772res/2008shr kb, in 10usr/370sys/1771real
ms.
Pass 2: analysis failed. Try again with another '--vp 01' option.

No, this is a bug in systemtap. I will reassign this bug.
