OK.
I have anyway added support for __extension__ in genksyms.
See below patch.

Note: To try this patch out do the following in a fresh tree (no generated files):
$ rm scripts/genksyms/*_shipped
$ apply patch
$ make GENERATE_PARSER=1 ...

In kbuild.git the _shipped files are updated but that would just be noise here.

Subject: [PATCH] kbuild: __extension__ support in genksyms (fix unknown CRC warning)

Recently the __extension__ keyword has been introduced in the kernel.
Teach genksyms about this keyword so it can generate correct CRC for
exported symbols that uses a symbol marked __extension__.
For now only the typedef variant:

	__extension__ typedef ...

is supported.
Later we may add more variants as needed.

This patch contains the actual source file changes. The
following patch will hold modifications to the generated
files (*_shipped) and only after the second patch the fix
has effect.
