Hi All,

Compiled the vanila kernel 4.20.0-rc6 build, and was trying to get
module information, but /proc/modules is not showing any output ( both
on arm64 and x86_64 )

root at ubuntu:~# uname -a
Linux ubuntu 4.20.0-rc6-00082-g65e08c5e8631 #7 SMP PREEMPT Fri Dec 14
15:54:30 IST 2018 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux

root at ubuntu:~# cat /proc/modules
root at ubuntu:~#

Tried with older version 4.4.162-78-default modules were properly shown.

Can you please help if there is something which I am missing during
compilation or is there any potential bug here ? Thanks in advance.
