    SubjectRe: Improved ksymoops output

    I like the idea very much. As I have to maintain a kernel tree for
    various customers too, I think this could be a nice addition for the bug
    reports (seldom luckily) I sometimes get.

    > =================

    [snipped rest of the bash script]

    This can be improved a little bit:

    # Meant to be run in top lever kernel source dir
    # after kernel has been built
    # Makes list of the form:
    # symbol1 object_file_pathname1
    # symbol2 object_file_pathname2
    # symbol3 object_file_pathname3


    find -name '*.c' | while read a; do
    #nm: get symbols from .o
    #grep: discard non-text symbols
    #awk: remove './', add .o pathname
    #cut: remove address and symbol type letter
    test -e "${b}.o" && {
    nm "${b}.o" \
    | grep '\( T \)\|\( t \)' \
    | awk "BEGIN { N=\" ${a:2}\" } { print \$0,N }" \
    | cut -b12- \

    This script compared to yours does (it's nitpicking):
    o run faster (5%) ;)
    o should never have problems when one day there will be a lot of *.c
    files. In your approach LIST could someday not hold all entries
    o simplifies the bash 'regexp' to snip away the '.c' and print the rest

    I'm propably going to rewrite the python script in bash too, since I
    don't run python on my distro (and I do not intend to use 2.5.x anytime
