Subject: [PATCH 2/6] kbuild: Put kallsyms into own section

From: Andi Kleen <ak@...ux.intel.com>

Put the kallsyms information into an own .kallsyms section.
This makes it easier to patch the kallsyms inside the executable.
Otherwise it shouldn't change anything.

Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@...ux.intel.com>
