powerpc/modules: If mprofile-kernel is enabled add it to vermagic
On powerpc we can build the kernel with two different ABIs for mcount(), which is used by ftrace. Kernels built with one ABI do not know how to load modules built with the other ABI. The new style ABI is called "mprofile-kernel", for want of a better name. Currently if we build a module using the old style ABI, and the kernel with mprofile-kernel, when we load the module we'll oops something like: # insmod autofs4-no-mprofile-kernel.ko ftrace-powerpc: Unexpected instruction f8810028 around bl _mcount ------------[ cut here ]------------ WARNING: CPU: 6 PID: 3759 at ../kernel/trace/ftrace.c:2024 ftrace_bug+0x2b8/0x3c0 CPU: 6 PID: 3759 Comm: insmod Not tainted 4.11.0-rc3-gcc-5.4.1-00017-g5a61ef74f269 #11 ...
