kbuild: fix modpost warnings for xtensa
The Xtensa architecture places literal pools in sections separate from the instructions. The corresponsing text sections, therefore, reference the .literal section, and we have to suppress those warnings. The naming convention defines the name for a literal section as .SECTION.literal, unless .SECTION is .text. In that case the name is only .literal. Using strncmp() instead of strcmp() to compare the from-section with .SECTION.init.refok in pattern 0 should not cause any regressions for other architectures. We also need to suppress warnings for two informational sections (.xt.lit and .xt.prop) used by the Xtensa architecture.
