RISC-V has an extended form of mapping symbols that we use to encode
the ISA when it changes in the middle of an ELF.  This trips up modpost
as a build failure, I haven't yet verified it yet but I believe the
kallsyms difference should result in stacks looking sane again.

Reported-by: Randy Dunlap <rdunlap@infradead.org>
Closes: https://lore.kernel.org/all/9d9e2902-5489-4bf0-d9cb-556c8e5d71c2@infradead.org/

Changes since v1 <20230707054007.32591-1-palmer@rivosinc.com/>:

* Drop the unnecessary IS_RISCV define and just inline it.
