Subject: [PATCH] module: fix validate_section_offset() overflow bug on 64-bit

validate_section_offset() uses unsigned long local variable to
add/store shdr->sh_offset and shdr->sh_size on all platforms.
unsigned long is too short when sh_offset is Elf64_Off which
would be the case on 64bit ELF headers.

Fix the overflow problem using the right size local variable when
CONFIG_64BIT is defined.
