parisc: Enable -ffunction-sections for modules on 32-bit kernel
Frank Schreiner reported, that since kernel 4.18 he faces sysfs-warnings when loading modules on a 32-bit kernel. Here is one such example: sysfs: cannot create duplicate filename '/module/nfs/sections/.text' CPU: 0 PID: 98 Comm: modprobe Not tainted 4.18.0-2-parisc #1 Debian 4.18.10-2 Backtrace: [<1017ce2c>] show_stack+0x3c/0x50 [<107a7210>] dump_stack+0x28/0x38 [<103f900c>] sysfs_warn_dup+0x88/0xac [<103f8b1c>] sysfs_add_file_mode_ns+0x164/0x1d0 [<103f9e70>] internal_create_group+0x11c/0x304 [<103fa0a0>] sysfs_create_group+0x48/0x60 [<1022abe8>] load_module.constprop.35+0x1f9c/0x23b8 [<1022b278>] sys_finit_module+0xd0/0x11c [<101831dc>] syscall_exit+0x0/0x14 This warning gets triggered by the fact, that due to commit 24b6c22504a2 ("parisc: Build kernel without -ffunction-sections") we now get multiple .text sections in the kernel modules for which sysfs_create_group() can't create multiple virtual files. This patch works around the problem by re-enabling the -ffunction-sections compiler option for modules, while keeping it disabled for the non-module kernel code.
