I checked those warnings. Some of the patches are good cases to check if we
can improve the heuristics on EXPORT_SYMBOL().

E.g., commit bfdaf029c9c9 ("ia64: turn csum_partial_copy_from_user() into
csum_and_copy_from_user()") looks sound to me, and checkpatch.pl should not
really warn about that.

Mrinal, maybe you can find out why checkpatch.pl believes that this case is
wrong and needs to be warned about?
