[PATCH reworded] x86/kbuild: enable modversions for symbols exported from asm

From: Adam Borowski
Date: Mon Nov 21 2016 - 09:54:27 EST

Commit 4efca4ed ("kbuild: modversions for EXPORT_SYMBOL() for asm") adds
modversion support for symbols exported from asm files. Architectures
must include C-style declarations for those symbols in asm/asm-prototypes.h
in order for them to be versioned.

Add these declarations for x86, and an architecture-independent file that
can be used for common symbols.

User impact: kernels may fail to load modules at all when

Now with a better description, provided by Nick Piggin (thanks!), and a
remark about user impact.

This version doesn't split the patch between x86 vs generic parts, would you
guys prefer that?
