    The arch linker script for .ko's is free to fold notes into a single
    section with a different name or suchlike, and maybe future ones will. So
    it's not pedantically kosher to assume the name of the section rather than
    just looking at all the /sys/module/%s/notes/* files present until you find
    NT_GNU_BUILD_ID. (In practice there is probably only ever one file there
    to look at, but you never know.)


    Thanks,
    Roland
