    The code in 2.6.17 breaks when spufs is non-modular. Currently, this is
    a compile-time option so users can work around it by building spufs
    as a loadable module.

    For 2.6.18, we want to make the part of spufs that calls this
    non-modular in order to avoid adding further EXPORT_SYMBOLs. I would
    much prefer to have the fix in 2.6.17 already, but we could
    alternatively force spufs to be a loadable module in 2.6.17 and
    change it later.
