Subjectx86: Why have __copy_from_user_ll_nocache* been exported?
A commit that does nothing except for adding two unused EXPORT_SYMBOL's.

Without any rationale why they should be exported.

And that from a person who on the other hand wants to introduce
(and tries to force on other people) deprecation periods for unused

Can we please get this reverted quickly?
