    genksyms: fix typeof() handling · dc533240
    Jan Beulich authored
    Recent increased use of typeof() throughout the tree resulted in a
    number of symbols (25 in a typical distro config of ours) not getting a
    proper CRC calculated for them anymore, due to the parser in genksyms
    not coping with several of these uses (interestingly in the majority of
    [if not all] cases the problem is due to the use of typeof() in code
    preceding a certain export, not in the declaration/definition of the
    exported function/object itself; I wasn't able to find a way to address
    this more general parser shortcoming).
    The use of parameter_declaration is a little more relaxed than would be
    ideal (permitting not just a bare type specification, but also one with
    identifier), but since the same code is being passed through an actual
    compiler, there's no apparent risk of allowing through any broken code.
    Otoh using parameter_declaration instead of the ad hoc
    "decl_specifier_seq '*'" / "decl_specifier_seq" pair allows all types to
    be handled rather than just plain ones and pointers to plain ones.
