    The exported symbols can be extracted just as easily from as
    from vmlinux, so I think I still don't understand your point. (And chances
    are higher that is in /boot than an uncompressed vmlinux).

    depmod does give correct warnings, but only at modules install time, not
    at modules build time, that's what I was trying to say.
