Subject[PATCH 3/6] kbuild: Don't include const variable in kallsyms with !KALLSYMS_ALL
Date
const variables are put into the text segment, so !KALLSYMS_ALL
includes them into the kallsyms section. Remove them to make
the kallsyms smaller. This also avoids some problems with LTO.
The way LTO generates the first pass kallsyms cannot handle
variables currently, so if we don't filter them out the
first and second level pass differ too much.
