Last time I looked, grep didn't have the ability to find a string that
isn't in the file. The address you are searching for might be between
two addresses listed in System.map, in which case find_name.c will
print the symbol corresponding to the lower of the two addresses. Not
that I use find_name.c myself. I agree that arch/ppc/kernel is a bad
place for it too.
