Fix race between cat /proc/*/wchan and rmmod et al
kallsyms_lookup() can go iterating over modules list unprotected which is OK for emergency situations (oops), but not OK for regular stuff like /proc/*/wchan. Introduce lookup_symbol_name()/lookup_module_symbol_name() which copy symbol name into caller-supplied buffer or return -ERANGE. All copying is done with module_mutex held, so...
