Can somebody with flex/bison experience help with genksyms?

The following code fails to generate a crc when run through genksyms.

#include <linux/module.h>

struct nodepda_s {
	int	z1, z2;

DEFINE_PER_CPU(struct nodepda_s *, __sn_nodepda);

While the following works:

#include <linux/module.h>

struct nodepda_s {
        int     z1, z2;

typedef struct nodepda_s * nodepda_s_p;

DEFINE_PER_CPU(nodepda_s_p, __sn_nodepda);

This appears to be due to the way STRUCT_KEYW is handled in parse.y as
compared to TYPEOF_KEYW.  I know nothing about flex and bison.  I am
just trolling for anybody willing to help.  I believe the STRUCT_KEYW
handling would need to consume the *, but am not sure how that is
conditionally done.
