Yes agree - this needs revision. We can also drop the EXPORT_SYMBOLS
from the now-static routines.

| Why the we searching? Can't we just do:
| 
| {
| 	if (id > ARRAY_SIZE(ccids) - 2)
| 		return NULL;
| 	return ccids[id - 2];
| }

Agree 100%, I don't like the routine myself and have been thinking about
how to rewrite it. Current idea is to go back to the original and use

static struct ccid_operations *ccids[CCIDS_MAX] = {
	[DCCPC_CCID2] = &ccid2_ops,
#ifdef CONFIG_IP_DCCP_CCID3
	[DCCPC_CCID3] = &ccid3_ops,
#endif
};

And then use 
	
	if (id < 0 || id >= CCIDS_MAX)
		return NULL;
	return ccids[id];		

which may be NULL if there is no entry in the array. Better?
