- help
- Unused but exported symbols make the kernel needlessly bigger. For
- that reason most of these unused exports will soon be removed. This
- option is provided temporarily to provide a transition period in case
- some external kernel module needs one of these symbols anyway. If you
- encounter such a case in your module, consider if you are actually
- using the right API. (rationale: since nobody in the kernel is using
- this in a module, there is a pretty good chance it's actually the
- wrong interface to use). If you really need the symbol, please send a
- mail to the linux kernel mailing list mentioning the symbol and why
- you really need it, and what the merge plan to the mainline kernel for
- your module is.
