Yes, you can add the EXPORT_SYMBOL to a different source file --- you
don't have to do the export from the same file which defines the
symbol. linux/kernel/ksyms.c contains exports from all over the rest
of the kernel, for example. If you pick a reiserfs source file which
already exports symbols and add your exports there, I _think_ it
should work OK.
