Just wondering, why do you care?

And it should be roughly the same as objdump

Right now what I am looking for is list od all mounted partitions. I don't want to count on /etc/mtab or other file. I want to extract info from kernel.

WhyI want to see kallsyms format:
1) Which functions are exported from kernel and I maybe I will them from module.
2) General interest - file is there what meaning does it have.
3) Maybe I can get a pointer to unexported function this way. This might prove usefull as I need to get a list of all mounted partitions stored in super_blocks which is unexported but there is a memory location shown in /proc/kallsyms.

Maybe "man nm" gives some hints about the character representing the object type in cat /proc/kallsyms
