We can adapt :-)

This should be added to tools/perf/check-headers.sh as a new
function_check() function that receives three parameters:

	function_check scripts/kallsyms.c tools/perf/tests/vmlinux-kallsyms.c is_ignored_symbol

The regexps can also be tightened up a bit.

Michael, can you cook up a patch for this?

Thanks,
