To allow existing C code to be incorporated into the decompressor or
the UEFI stub, introduce a CPP macro that turns all EXPORT_SYMBOL_xxx
declarations into nops, and #define it in places where such exports
are undesirable. Note that this gets rid of a rather dodgy redefine
of linux/export.h's header guard.
