RFC: vdso build-id standard location

Hi all-

I've proposed a patch to the Linux kernel:


This patch will cause 'make vdso_install' to install build-id symlinks
to /lib/modules/KERNEL_VERSION/vdso/.build-id

The idea is that gdb on Linux platforms could change its default
build-id search path to include that directory and therefore find vdso
debug info for home-built kernels instead of just for Fedora-style
kernel RPMs.

Is this reasonable?  Is it something that can/should be easily added to gdb?
