Subject[PATCH 2/4] module: Sort exported symbols
Date
This patch places every exported symbol in its own section
(i.e. "___ksymtab__printk"). Thus the linker will use its SORT() directive
to sort and finally merge all symbol in the right and final section
(i.e. "__ksymtab").

This work was supported by a hardware donation from the CE Linux Forum.
