But that's the wrong "fix", as it introduces a different
__VMALLOC_RESERVE symbol than the one that is not anymore exported
(but still used). So while there are no errors at module load time,
any access to __VMALLOC_RESERVE will be to the above symbol and not
The fix is either in nvidia's sources (e.g. 6629) or in rexprting the
symbol in the kernel (requires patching the kernel).
