Looks like someone pushed my patch. Erm, OK, wonder if it works on
x86? 8)

My mental TODO list looked something like this:
1) Drop the optimization which checks against addr between _stext and
_etext, as this skips __init functions on most archs.
2) Only put in the symbols for functions (currently CONFIG_KALLSYMS=y
adds 400k on my laptop: ouch!).
3) Keith asked me to rename it, so as not to get confused with the
previous patches and kgdb support). I guess it's too late for this
4) Use a simple scheme like the mini-oopser did to reduce the symbol
table size furthur (I got it down to 70k IIRC).
5) See if Kai prefers the compile step inside the Makefile rather than
in the script.
6) It'd be nice if CONFIG_KALLSYMS=m worked.

If someone wants to champion any or all of these, be my guest, there's
plenty to go around 8)
