I am trying to implement a kernel module in which I want to search the System.map file for certain symbols. In x86 these are bounded by loops_per_jiffy and boot_cpu_data. However the ppc64 arch does not have the latter. How can I find the bounds for ppc64, I am running 2.6.16-rc4-3-ppc64 flavor on POWER5.
I can currently grep it from command line, but I want to automate it.
Thanks for all help
