Subject: [PATCH] kallsyms: don't leak address when printing symbol

Currently if a pointer is printed using %p[ssB] and the symbol is not
found (kallsyms_lookup() fails) then we print the actual address. This
leaks kernel addresses. We should instead print something _safe_.

Print "<no-symbol>" instead of kernel address.
