It doeds make a difference, that function is only exported if you have
IDE enabled in the .config. However, if you just enable it and redo
the make, it may not work, as the actual export table may not be
rebuilt properly.

I suggest you enable IDE, backup .config, make distclean,
restore .config, make oldconfig, then make.
