Subject[PATCH 01/17] kallsyms: support big kernel symbols (2-byte lengths)
Date
From: Miguel Ojeda <ojeda@kernel.org>

Rust symbols can become quite long due to namespacing introduced
by modules, types, traits, generics, etc.

Increasing to 255 is not enough in some cases, and therefore
we need to introduce 2-byte lengths to the symbol table. We call
these "big" symbols.

In order to avoid increasing all lengths to 2 bytes (since most
of them only require 1 byte, including many Rust ones), we use
length zero to mark "big" symbols in the table.
