Yeah, I guess I'll move it there some time. It'd also be possible to make
genksyms just a filter which takes the preprocessed input as a filter,
generates the module symbol checksums and outputs the preprocessed code
with the right versions added.

OTOH, that'd mean that my trick of using the linker to add the checksums
would become obsolete again, though it's sooo cute ;)
