Subject: [PATCH 03/10] module: extract __EXPORT_SYMBOL from module.h into mod_export.h
Date: Tue,  3 Nov 2009 10:06:15 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1257242782-10496-4-git-send-email-alan-jenkins@tuffmail.co.uk> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <9b2b86520911020852q49c55695rb05d87090fa9ad33@mail.gmail.com>

The new header mod_export.h allows __EXPORT_SYMBOL to be used without
pulling in any function or variable declarations.  It will be used by
the build system to help sort the list of symbols exported by the
kernel.
