Sure Lukas.
I have a doubt though, Can't we use a single expression separated by
"|" here, instead of multiple lines? i.e.,

$x =~
s/__packed|__aligned|____cacheline_aligned_in_smp|____cacheline_aligned|__attribute__\s*\(\([a-z0-9,_\s\(\)]*\)\)\s*//;


Probably we could do something similar for dump_function, i.e.,
-    $prototype =~ s/^static +//;
-    $prototype =~ s/^extern +//;
-    $prototype =~ s/^asmlinkage +//;
-    $prototype =~ s/^inline +//;
-    $prototype =~ s/^__inline__ +//;
-    $prototype =~ s/^__inline +//;
-    $prototype =~ s/^__always_inline +//;
-    $prototype =~ s/^noinline +//;

+    $prototype =~
s/^(?:static|extern|asmlinkage|__?inline__?|__always_inline|noinline) +//;
And so on for other regexps.

What do you think?

Thanks
Aditya
