perl isnt my thing so i'm going to assume what you added does as intended (i
dont really get the regex statement you've added)

all i was using to test was to edit the file and remove VMLINUX_SYMBOL() from
a place or two and then do:
diff -Nur /dev/null include/asm-generic/vmlinux.lds.h |
./scripts/checkpatch.pl

thanks for adding this ... it'll save me consistent pain :)
