Thanks for explaining this.

It is not the case any more.


I will reword the commit message as follows:

------------------------>8---------------------------------------
export.h: remove defined(__KERNEL__), which is no longer needed

The conditional define(__KERNEL__) was added by commit f235541699bc
("export.h: allow for per-symbol configurable EXPORT_SYMBOL()").

It was needed at that time to avoid the build error of modpost
with CONFIG_TRIM_UNUSED_KSYMS=y.

Since commit b2c5cdcfd4bc ("modpost: remove symbol prefix support"),
modpost no longer includes linux/export.h, thus the define(__KERNEL__)
is unneeded.
------------------------>8---------------------------------------
