Errmm... I really feel pretty small coming in on a Russell King / Linus
Torvalds discussion, but I was the one who promised the patch and I just
wanted to keep my promises.

The patch (against 2.6.11-rc5) is attached, should you decide to use it.

IMHO it makes the kallsyms code look nicer, by getting rid of the
__attribute__((weak)) statements int kernel/kallsyms.c code.

Me getting out of here now....
