Matthias Maennich Oct. 18, 2019, 9:31 a.m. UTC
Setting the symbol namespace of a symbol within sym_add_exported feels
displaced and lead to issues in the current implementation of symbol
namespaces. This patch makes updating the namespace an explicit call to
decouple it from adding a symbol to the export list.
