[PATCH] ppc32: platform-specific functions missing from kallsyms.
The PPC32 kernel puts platform-specific functions into separate sections so that unneeded parts of it can be freed when we've booted and actually worked out what we're running on today. This makes kallsyms ignore those functions, because they're not between _[se]text or _[se]inittext. Rather than teaching kallsyms about the various pmac/chrp/etc sections, this patch adds '_[se]extratext' markers for kallsyms.
