Adding EXPORT_SYMBOL to the kernel and particulary other people's code
is highly politically sensitive, since you're basically extending the
territory non-GPL code can access.

If this is a patch you intend to distribute in this form, please check
beforehand on LKLM that this is acceptable. (And expect a hard time
justifying it.)

A considerably less problematic choice would be to use EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL
