Yeah, I agree that we should drop this uapi define. How about we use

#define KSYM_NAME_LEN 128

If a function name is longer than KSYM_NAME_LEN, we get warning like:

Symbol long_long_name_abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz_abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz_abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz_abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz_abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz_abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz_abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz_ too long for kallsyms (204 vs 128).
Please increase KSYM_NAME_LEN both in kernel and kallsyms.c

Thanks,
Song
