Subject: [PATCH v2 1/3] module: merge repetitive strings in module_sig_check()

The 'reason' variable in module_sig_check() points to 3 strings across
the *switch* statement, all needlessly starting with the same text.
Let's put the starting text into the pr_notice() call -- it saves 21
bytes of the object code (x86 gcc 10.2.1).

Suggested-by: Joe Perches <joe@...ches.com>
Signed-off-by: Sergey Shtylyov <s.shtylyov@...russia.ru>

---
Changes in version 2:
- put less starting text into the pr_notice() call;
- updated the patch description accordingly, added the "Suggested-by:" tag.
