What does _DYNAMIC mean?

I got next in my backtrace
<_DYNAMIC+43680> as a value of plabel.

Could anybody explain or point me to the right place where I can get to know what does it mean? Is it normal?

Normally it means something can be changed.

With regards to a kernel parameter you can change it without compiling and installing and booting the new kernel.

Re: What does _DYNAMIC mean?

Nothing. It means that there were no symbols at that location and that _DYNAMIC was the closest.

Can you show the commands you used. And what did you really want to do/know??
