Issue #2289 has been updated by Thomas Nikolajsen.

Adding 'options COMPAT_43' to kernel config solves problem.
(I also found that myself, but thanks a lot for looking into this)

COMPAT_43 was removed from GENERIC recently (2nd Novemer 2011);
but it seems like linux kernel module needs it for now,
I will readd COMPAT_43 to GENERIC.

After fixing this I got another linux emulation problem:
mount_linprocfs panic'ed, I have opened issue 2290 for this.
Bug #2289: 'kldload linux' fails

Author: Thomas Nikolajsen
Status: New
Priority: Normal
Target version: 

On master and DragonFly_RELEASE_3_0 from yesterday (25th January 2012)
loading linux.ko kernel module fails,
both using loader(8) and kldload(8):
link_elf: symbol sys_osethostname undefined.
(i.e. both binutils 2.22 and 2.21)

This may be binutils related;
I think it worked with binutils 2.17, will test.

This is using a custom kernel; will test GENERIC.

# kldload linux
link_elf: symbol sys_osethostname undefined
kldload: can't load linux: No such file or directory
