Workaround genksyms not handling an EXPORT_SYMBOL() on a struct nodepda_s *.

The following works around a problem in genksyms.  I do not understand
flex and bison.  For the short term, I was wondering if the following
patch would be acceptable.  I would hope it is not a final solution,
but it at least generates a CRC for __sn_nodepda.
