Why is the typedef needed?  Can't we use something like

extern const struct kmalloc_info_struct {
	const char *name;
	unsigned long size;
} kmalloc_info[];

...

const struct kmalloc_info_struct kmalloc_info[] __initconst = {
 	{NULL,                      0},		{"kmalloc-96",             96},
 	{"kmalloc-192",           192},		{"kmalloc-8",               8},
 	{"kmalloc-16",             16},		{"kmalloc-32",             32},
	...
	{"kmalloc-67108864", 67108864}
};
