When we load a module, we have to perform some special work for a couple
of named sections. To do this, we iterate over all of the module's
sections, and perform work for each section we recognize.

To make it easier to handle the unexpected absence of a section, and to
make the section-specific logic easer to read, let's factor the section
search into a helper. Similar is already done in the core module loader,
and other architectures (and ideally we'd unify these in future).

If we expect a module to have an ftrace trampoline section, but it
doesn't have one, we'll now reject loading the module. When
ARM64_MODULE_PLTS is selected, any correctly built module should have
one (and this is assumed by arm64's ftrace PLT code) and the absence of
such a section implies something has gone wrong at build time.

Subsequent patches will make use of the new helper.
