Subject[ 30/42] modpost: Fix modpost license checking of vmlinux.o
3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Frank Rowand <frank.rowand@am.sony.com>

commit 258f742635360175564e9470eb060ff4d4b984e7 upstream.

Commit f02e8a6596b7 ("module: Sort exported symbols") sorts symbols
placing each of them in its own elf section. This sorting and merging
into the canonical sections are done by the linker.

Unfortunately modpost to generate Module.symvers file parses vmlinux.o
(which is not linked yet) and all modules object files (which aren't
linked yet). These aren't sanitized by the linker yet. That breaks
modpost that can't detect license properly for modules.

This patch makes modpost aware of the new exported symbols structure.

[ This above is a slightly corrected version of the explanation of the
problem, copied from commit 62a2635610db ("modpost: Fix modpost's
license checking V3"). That commit fixed the problem for module
object files, but not for vmlinux.o. This patch fixes modpost for
vmlinux.o. ]
