modpost: do not try to match the SHT_NUL section.
Trying to match the SHT_NUL section isn't useful and causes build failures on parisc and mn10300 since the addition of section strict white-listing and __ex_table sanitizing. Signed-off-by: Quentin Casasnovas <quentin.casasnovas@oracle.com> Reported-by: Guenter Roeck <linux@roeck-us.net> Fixes: 050e57fd5936 ("modpost: add strict white-listing when referencing....") Fixes: 52dc0595d540 ("modpost: handle relocations mismatch in __ex_table.") Tested-by: Guenter Roeck <linux@roeck-us.net> Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>
