       kpatch-build - build script


       kpatch-build [options] <patch file>


       This script takes a patch based on the version of the kernel currently running and creates
       a kernel module that will replace modified functions in the kernel such that  the  patched
       code takes effect.


          Show this help message

          Specify the kernel arch version

          Specify kernel source RPM

          Specify kernel source directory

          Specify kernel config file

          Specify original vmlinux

          Specify the number of make jobs

          Specify custom kernel build targets

          Specify the name of the kpatch module

          Specify output folder

          Keep scratch files in /tmp
          (can be specified multiple times)

          Enable patching out-of-tree module,
          specify current version of module

          Skip post-build cleanup

          Skips check that ensures that the system gcc version and
          the gcc version that built the kernel match.  Skipping this
          check is not recommended, but is useful if the exact gcc
          version is not available or is not easily installed. Use
          only when confident that the two versions of gcc output
          identical objects for a given target.  Otherwise, use of
          this option might result in unexpected changed objects
          being detected.
