livepatch: Make livepatch dependent on !TRIM_UNUSED_KSYMS
If TRIM_UNUSED_KSYMS is enabled, all unneeded exported symbols are made unexported. Two-pass build of the kernel is done to find out which symbols are needed based on a configuration. This effectively complicates things for out-of-tree modules. Livepatch exports functions to (un)register and enable/disable a live patch. The only in-tree module which uses these functions is a sample in samples/livepatch/. If the sample is disabled, the functions are trimmed and out-of-tree live patches cannot be built. Note that live patches are intended to be built out-of-tree.
