I really like this approach as you make the resolver
configurable, this lets others experiment and consider
alternatives.

make KSYMB_GENERATOR=/path/research/my-config-generator-is-better

The fact that you can do this should be documented as part of
the patch commit log.

You'll want to wrap this generation under a CONFIG option so only
kernels that want generate this file.

You can leave this out.
