Add support for weak symbols to the kernel linkers.  It means that
linkers no longer raise an error when undefined weak symbols are
found, but relocate as if the symbol value was 0.  Note that we do not
repeat the mistake of userspace dynamic linker of making the symbol
lookup prefer non-weak symbol definition over the weak one, if both
are available.  In fact, kernel linker uses the first definition
found, and ignores duplicates.

Signature of the elf_lookup() and elf_obj_lookup() functions changed
to split result/error code and the symbol address returned.
Otherwise, it is impossible to return zero address as the symbol
value, to MD relocation code.  This explains the mechanical changes in
elf_machdep.c sources.

The powerpc64 R_PPC_JMP_SLOT handler did not checked error from the
lookup() call, the patch leaves the code as is (untested).
