If EXPORT_XX are copyright notices, copyright *law* prohibit their modification.

They are not copyright notices. US law, at least, is very clear and very explicit about the form a copyright notice must take, and these are nowhere near it.

And even if you somehow think they are permission grants, we're left with the question: Who got permission from all copyright holders on the Linux kernel to add them? No one.
