macro. That macro used to be in the /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/macros
file, but was moved in RHEL 8 and later versions of Fedora to
the /usr/lib/rpm/macros.d/macros.kmp file which is owned by the
If I attempt to build my packages on these later systems with mock,
they break imediately even when just trying to create the srpm
because the %kernel_module_package macro is undefined leading to
a spec file parse error.
What I need help with is understanding where the bug is and the best

I would think that either: 1) my spec file needs to be updated in

package needs to be added to the @buildsys-build group for Fedora
(or added to the "config_opts['chroot_setup_cmd']=..." cfg line for

If I do need to tweak the spec file, if someone could point me to
an example of how, that would be appreciated.
