        Very wired that, the two functions are both used in the same kext of mine, but strncasecmp() is OK, while strnstr() will trigger below error when loading the kext:



        (kernel) kxld[com.dolphin.kext.aliedr]: The following symbols are unresolved for this kext:

        (kernel) kxld[com.dolphin.kext.aliedr]: _strnstr

        (kernel) Can't load kext com.dolphin.kext.aliedr - link failed.


        After checked, they are both declared in the same header file -- macOS 10.15 > Frameworks > Kernel > string.h


        Any comments?

          strnstr is not part of any public KPI.  And yeah, that is weird.  You can file a bug about this if you like but, given our announced future direction with regards KEXTs, I wouldn’t get your hopes up.
