These __ksymtab*/__kcrctab* sections currently have non-zero addresses.
Non-zero section addresses in a relocatable ELF confuse GDB and it ends
up not relocating all symbols when add-symbol-file is used on modules
which have exports.  The kernel's module loader does not care about
these addresses, so let's just set them to zero.

 Before:

  $ readelf -S lib/notifier-error-inject.ko   | grep 'Name\| __ksymtab_gpl'
    [Nr] Name              Type            Addr     Off    Size   ES Flg Lk Inf Al
    [ 8] __ksymtab_gpl     PROGBITS        0000000c 0001b4 000010 00   A  0   0  4

  (gdb) add-symbol-file lib/notifier-error-inject.ko 0x500000 -s .bss 0x700000
  add symbol table from file "lib/notifier-error-inject.ko" at
     .text_addr = 0x500000
     .bss_addr = 0x700000
  (gdb) p &notifier_err_inject_dir
  $3 = (struct dentry **) 0x0

 After:

  $ readelf -S lib/notifier-error-inject.ko   | grep 'Name\| __ksymtab_gpl'
    [Nr] Name              Type            Addr     Off    Size   ES Flg Lk Inf Al
    [ 8] __ksymtab_gpl     PROGBITS        00000000 0001b4 000010 00   A  0   0  4

  (gdb) add-symbol-file lib/notifier-error-inject.ko 0x500000 -s .bss 0x700000
  add symbol table from file "lib/notifier-error-inject.ko" at
     .text_addr = 0x500000
     .bss_addr = 0x700000
  (gdb) p &notifier_err_inject_dir
  $3 = (struct dentry **) 0x700000
