    Subject[PATCH] fix in-kernel genksyms for parisc symbols
    The problem is that the parisc libgcc.a library contains symbols that
    look like $$mulI and the like, but genksyms doesn't think $ is legal for
    a function symbol, so they all get dropped from the output. This means
    that inserting almost any module on parisc taints the kernel because
    these symbols have no version.

    The fix (attached below) was to allow $ in an identifier in lex.l (and
    obviously to update the _shipped files as well, but my flex/bison seem
    to be rather different from the one they were generated with, so I'll
    leave that to whomever has the correct versions).
