Great. I have pushed the patch that removes printk_symbol()
into printk.git, branch for-4.16-print-symbol.

Note that I have updated the commit message similar way
like I did for the other commits. Especially I wanted
to mention what it was obsoleted by. The message is:

  kallsyms: remove print_symbol() function

  No more print_symbol()/__print_symbol() users left, remove these

  It was a very old API that encouraged people use continuous lines.
  It had been obsoleted by %pS format specifier in a normal printk()
