    Ok, I did my own versions, since (a) I had already started and your
    patches wouldn't apply, and (b) I hate adding a zillion lines of extra
    copyright notices for a 5-line function and (c) I think your patch had
    EXPORT_SYMBOL wrong.

    In particular, if any architecture ever decides to roll their own
    version of strlcpy/strlcat, the EXPORT_SYMBOL() in ksyms.c would be the
    wrong thing to do.

    The current BK tree has my totally untested versions of these functions
    ("Famous last words: 'how hard can it be?'"), along with what I think
    is the proper way to export them.
