Bug Description

Currently we have 6.4.10 in the Xenial kernel. The latest OpenNSL Sep-27 release[1] updates kernel modules to 6.5.10.

Since the module doesn't load automatically, this update shouldn't have any impact for people don't use the module.

For the module itself, it loads without problem on a test system.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-done-xenial'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-failed-xenial'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
