Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.4 013/101] x86: i8259: export legacy_pic symbol
Date
From: Hans de Goede <hdegoede@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit 7ee06cb2f840a96be46233181ed4557901a74385 ]

The classic PC rtc-coms driver has a workaround for broken ACPI device
nodes for it which lack an irq resource. This workaround used to
unconditionally hardcode the irq to 8 in these cases.

This was causing irq conflict problems on systems without a legacy-pic
so a recent patch added an if (nr_legacy_irqs()) guard to the
workaround to avoid this irq conflict.

nr_legacy_irqs() uses the legacy_pic symbol under the hood causing
an undefined symbol error if the rtc-cmos code is build as a module.

This commit exports the legacy_pic symbol to fix this.
