Subject[PATCH 8/33] kallsyms.c: Generate relocatable symbols.
Date
Print the addresses of non-absolute symbols relative to _text
so that ld will generate relocations. Allowing a relocatable
kernel to relocate them. We can't actually use the symbol names
because kallsyms includes static symbols that are not exported
from their object files.
