For the record triggering this flood of ERRORs for undefined symbols that you
ran into has been possible ever since TRIM_UNUSED_KSYMS was added to the tree
(in v4.7). I just tested that.

Perhaps this is all documented somewhere. But even then it would be nice if
the build would fail right at the start. Ie, the build probably should fail if
one does "make bzImage" while having a .config with
    CONFIG_TRIM_UNUSED_KSYMS=y
    CONFIG_MODULES=y
    # CONFIG_MODVERSIONS is not set

Because it seems in that case the subsequent "make modules" will then end in
this flood of ERRORs.
