The attached patch fixes the build failures on parisc and mn10300 on my
defconfig build and should apply cleanly on top of the previous two.

I'm not able to download the score cross toolchain for the moment but will
do tomorrow. Guenter, may I ask if there were any other problems than the
one you fixed in string.S there?

Subject: [PATCH] modpost: do not try to match the SHT_NUL section.

Trying to match the SHT_NUL section isn't useful and causes build failures
on parisc and mn10300 since the addition of section strict white-listing
and __ex_table sanitizing.

Fixes: 52dc0595d540 ("modpost: handle relocations mismatch in __ex_table.")
