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
CONFIG_MODVERSIONS=y.

From an observer POV: based on the git log include/asm-generic/
arch/x86/include/asm/, a split up seems quite common.

By the way, to make the description and discussion closer, you might
want to structure your mail like this:

    [patch description]
    ---
    [discussion]
    ---
    [actual patch]

When applying the patch, the text after the first "---" is automatically
dropped.

Thanks!

Kind regards,
Peter
