Subject[genksyms patch 4/4] Allow to ignore symbol checksum changes
This adds an "override" keyword for use in *.symvers / *.symref files.  When a
symbol is overridden, the symbol's old definition will be used for computing
checksums instead of the new one, preserving the previous checksum. (Genksyms
will still warn about the change.)

This is meant to allow distributions to hide minor actual as well as fake ABI
changes. (For example, when extra type information becomes available because
additional headers are included, this may change checksums even though none of
the types used have actully changed.)

This approach also allows to get rid of "#ifdef __GENKSYMS__" hacks in the code,
which are currently used in some vendor kernels to work around checksum changes.
