SubjectRe: [PATCH] reduce the time of finding symbols for module

Is this stable through several (>=10) runs? 23 seconds are really
suspicious. Yes, there is a linear search through all the kallsyms in
kallsyms_on_each_symbol(), but there are something like 70k symbols on my
machine (that is, way less than 1M). 23 seconds are somewhat unexpected.

If it is a problem, can we fix kallsyms_on_each_symbol() and replace the
linear search with something better? All users would benefit...

Thanks,
Miroslav
