Subject[187/205] kbuild: Fix modpost segfault
2.6.34-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Krzysztof Halasa <khc@pm.waw.pl>

commit 1c938663d58b5b2965976a6f54cc51b5d6f691aa upstream.

It just hit me.
It's the offset calculation in reloc_location() which overflows:
return (void *)elf->hdr + sechdrs[section].sh_offset +
(r->r_offset - sechdrs[section].sh_addr);

E.g. for the first rodata r entry:
r->r_offset < sechdrs[section].sh_addr
and the expression in the parenthesis produces 0xFFFFFFE0 or something
equally wise.
