From: Miguel Ojeda <ojeda@kernel.org>

Now that all the shared Rust infrastructure is in, we export all
the symbols reusing the `EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL` macro from C. The lists
of symbols are generated on the fly when compiling the crates.

There are three main sets of symbols to distinguish:

  - The ones from the `core` and `alloc` crates (from the Rust
    standard library). The code is licensed as Apache/MIT.

  - The ones from our abstractions in the `kernel` crate.

  - The helpers (already exported since they are not generated).

We export everything as GPL. This ensures we do not mistakenly
expose GPL kernel symbols/features as non-GPL, even indirectly.
