AMDPowerProfilerDriver 7.02 fails to compile on Linux with kernel 4.19.27

Question asked by rubin55 on May 10, 2019

When trying to compile AMDPowerProfiler-7.02 on Linux (kernel 4.19.27), I get the following error:

make -C /lib/modules/4.19.27-gentoo-r1-safe/build M=/usr/src/AMDPowerProfiler-7.02 EXTRA_CFLAGS="-I/usr/src/AMDPowerProfiler-7.02/inc -DKERNEL_MODULE -DLINUX -D_LINUX " modules

I can imagine a <string.h> missing somewhere, but since this is a kernel module, I'm not sure if including /usr/include/string.h is such a good idea and/or where that should be done. Any help appreciated!
