Subject[PATCH 2.5] speedup kallsyms_lookup
From
Date
[please cc...you know why]

a patch to speed up the kallsyms_lookup() function while still doing
compression.
- make 4 sections: addresses, lens, stem, strings
- only strncpy() when needed
- no strlen() at all (only in the script)
- save space we lose for len table by not making strings zero terminated

not yet included is hugh's patch to sort the symbols by name, i didn't
look at it yet. but at least it should not be off-by-one...i din't test
it that much, but it looks quiet ok..

not yet sent to linus. comments first. against 2.5.55.
