Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!

+#!/bin/sh -x
+# Based on the vmlinux file create the System.map file
+# System.map is used by module-init tools and some debugging
+# tools to retreive the actual addresses of symbols in the kernel.
+#
+# Usage
+# mksysmap vmlinux System.map
+
+
+#####
+# Generate System.map (actual filename passed as second argument)
+
+# $NM produces the following output:
+# f0081e80 T alloc_vfsmnt
+
+# The second row specify the type of the symbol:
+# A = Absolute
+# B = Uninitialised data (.bss)
+# C = Comon symbol
+# D = Initialised data
+# G = Initialised data for small objects
+# I = Indirect reference to another symbol
+# N = Debugging symbol
+# R = Read only
+# S = Uninitialised data for small objects
+# T = Text code symbol
+# U = Undefined symbol
+# V = Weak symbol
+# W = Weak symbol
+# Corresponding small letters are local symbols
+
+# For System.map filter away:
+# a - local absolute symbols
+# U - undefined global symbols
+# w - local weak symbols
+
+# readprofile starts reading symbols when _stext is found, and
+# continue until it finds a symbol which is not either of 'T', 't',
+# 'W' or 'w'. __crc_ are 'A' and placed in the middle
+# so we just ignore them to let readprofile continue to work.
+# (At least sparc64 has __crc_ in the middle).
