I didn't realize that we're supposed to be able to still build external

Yes. 'make clean' must keep all the build artifacts
needed for building external modules.
With that in mind, shouldn't Symbols.list to persist until mrproper?
And I think modules-livepatch could go away during clean, what do you think?
Symbols.list should be kept by the time mrproper is run.
So, please add it to MRROPER_FILES instead of CLEAN_FILES.
modules.livepatch is a temporary file, so you can add it to
How is this feature supposed to work for external modules?
"symbols from vmlinux" + "symbols from no-klp in-tree modules"
+ "symbols from no-klp external modules" ??
BTW, 'Symbols.list' sounds like a file to list out symbols
for generic purposes, but in fact, the
file format is very specific for the klp-convert tool.
Perhaps, is it better to rename it so it infers
this is for livepatching? What do you think?
