Subject[PATCH] Re: [Bug #12416] Recent change to kernel spikes out ccache/distcc
To address the various issues raised on the stripping patches, this
patch
- adds a config option to control whether __crc_* symbols should be
stripped from modules (and restores filtering out __crc_* in
mksysmap)
- adds a fallback if the advanced module stripping fails during module
installation
- disallows KALLSYMS_STRIP_GENERATED for 32-bit Sparc

Parts based on a draft patch from Sam Ravnborg.
