SubjectRe: syscall from modules
if i export these syms .. firstly ill have to
change the source/patch the kernel which is not
advisable then every time i write such a module .. ill
have to make sure that i export all these symbols and
there are no conflicts due to some wierd deps that
might be present ( u never know ! ) So i am looking
for a descent way to do the same

Still in need of help,
