        ^^
nit: if we dropped the trailing array comma delimiter from KLP_SYMPOS
macro, the invocations would look more intuitively like an array.  For
example:

  KLP_MODULE_RELOC(test_klp_convert_mod) test_klp_convert_mod_relocs_a[] = {
  	KLP_SYMPOS(driver_name, 0),
  	KLP_SYMPOS(homonym_string, 2),
  	KLP_SYMPOS(get_homonym_string, 2),
  };

But I could not figure out a good regex to reference if other such
kernel preprocessor macros include or exclude the delimiter.  Are there
reasons to include it?
