The 2.5 kallsyms does not have section data which is required for kdb
(and probably kgdb). That data used to be there until Rusty deleted
it, the lack of section data is one of the reasons that I no longer do
kdb for 2.5. If you want to kill kdb for 2.4 kernels as well, go ahead
and backport the incomplete 2.5 code.
