Subject[PATCH] module-init-tools-0.9.7, depmod and GPL-only symbols
Hi Rusty,
I finally got 2.5.56 running with configuration I always used (== almost
everything modular), and I found that module-init-tools-0.9.7 has small
problem with GPL-only symbols: depmod ignores them :-(

As I did not notice any newer version, please apply patch below if you
did not do something simillar already.

Of course you can create better solution, which will actually check
license and so on, but I just decided to leave this task on kernel, as
I believe that we do not want such code duplication between kernel and
module-init-tools.
Thanks,
Petr Vandrovec
