Thanks Thierry!

Your patch looks good to me, though I was wondering if we should just add
.text.* in the TEXT_SECTIONS macro. Some architectures define
-ffunction-sections (parisc, score, metag and frv) so there are tons of
useless warnings on these.. It also means the current modpost sanity
checks don't run for those so it might even uncover some real mismatch ;)
