Assuming exa is a loadable module the way xaa is, any non-static symbol in it 
is visible to the driver (for now anyway).  I plan on enforcing inter-module 
API as much as possible through use of _X_EXPORT and -fvisibility.  I haven't 
had a chance to look at the public exa api, but I imagine it's quite small.

From the driver's perspective, you still need to declare the symbols you're 
importing from exa, same as you do with xaa.
