Subject[RFC PATCH 5/5] Add kconf_symb as kernel module attribute
Date
Add kconf_symbol attribute to kernel struct module.

This patch is part of a research project within
Google Summer of Code of porting 'make localmodconfig'
for backported drivers. The goal is to enable each
module to expose in /sys its corresponding CONFIG_* option.
The value of this attribute will be dynamically pegged by
modpost without requiring extra work from the driver developers.
Further, this information will be used by a hardware interogation
tool to extract build information about the existing devices.
