If we pass a pointer to a const string in the form "module:symbol"
module_kallsyms_lookup_name() will try to split the string at the colon,
i.e., will try to modify r/o data. That will, in fact, fail on a kernel
with enabled CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA.

Avoid modifying the passed string in module_kallsyms_lookup_name(),
modify find_module_all() instead to pass it the module name length.

v2:
- don't use kstrdup(), pass the string length to find_module_all() as
  suggested by Rusty

Mind to push it to
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rusty/linux.git#modules-next
as well, so it'll be included in linux-next?

Thanks,
Mathias
