Kbuild fixes for v5.11 (2nd)
- Use the 'python3' command to invoke python scripts because some
distributions do not provide the 'python' command any more.
- Clean-up and update documents
- Use pkg-config to search libcrypto
- Fix duplicated debug flags
- Ignore some more stubs in scripts/kallsyms.c
kallsyms: fix nonconverging kallsyms table with lld
ARM randconfig builds with lld sometimes show a build failure
Inconsistent kallsyms data
Try make KALLSYMS_EXTRA_PASS=1 as a workaround
The problem is the veneers/thunks getting added by the linker extend
the symbol table, which in turn leads to more veneers being needed,
so it may take a few extra iterations to converge.
This bug has been fixed multiple times before, but comes back every time
a new symbol name is used. lld uses a different set of identifiers from
ld.bfd, so the additional ones need to be added as well.
I looked through the sources and found that arm64 and mips define similar
prefixes, so I'm adding those as well, aside from the ones I observed. I'm
not sure about powerpc64, which seems to already be handled through a
section match, but if it comes back, the "__long_branch_" and "__plt_"
prefixes would have to get added as well.
