Struct _ddebug has 2 kinds of fields: essential & optional/compressible.
Move the 3 optional fields: module, function, file into a new struct
_ddebug_site, and add pointer to it from _ddebug.

These fields are optional in that they are primarily used to generate
the optional "module:func:line" log prefix.  They're also used to
display control, and to select callsites to >control.  lineno is
arguably optional too, but it uses spare bytes in struct _ddebug, so
leaving it is free.

The "__dyndbg" ELF section contains the array of struct _ddebugs for
all the pr-debugs in the kernel/module.  Reuse this pattern for the
new "__dyndbg_sites" section.

The new ptr increases memory footprint, but it is temporary
scaffolding; once we can map from _ddebugs[N] --> _ddebug_sites[N]
indirectly, we can drop site pointer, regaining worst case memory
parity with master.

The indirection gives several advantages:

- site ptr lets us decouple the 2 arrays
  we can properly isolate dependencies by allowing null site

- the moved display fields are inherently hierarchical, and the linker
  section is ordered; so (module, file, function) have repeating
  values (90%, 85%, 45%).  This is readily compressible, even with a
  simple field-wise run length encoding.  Since I'm splitting the struct,
  I also reordered the fields to match the hierarchy.

- the separate linker section sets up naturally for block compression.
  section compression at build time is practical - how ?
  include/linux/decompress/generic.h has no corresponding compression

- we could drop sites and their storage opportunistically.
  this could reduce per-site mem by 24/56.

  Subsystems may not need/want "module:func:line:" in their logs.
  If they already use format-prefixes such as "drm:kms:",
  they can select on those, and don't need the site info for that.
  forex:
  #> echo module drm format "^drm:kms: " +p >control
  ie: dynamic_debug_exec_queries("format '^drm:kms: '", "drm");

Once we can map: ddebugs[N] -> ddebug_sites[N], we can:

- compress __dyndbg_sites during __init, and mark section __initdata
- store the compressed block instead.
- decompress on-demand, stream for `cat control`
- save chunks of decompressed buffer for enabled callsites
- free chunks on site disable, or on memory pressure.

Whats actually done here is ths rather mechanical, and preparatory.

dynamic_debug.h:

I cut struct _ddebug in half, renamed the optional top-half to
_ddebug_site, kept __align(8) for both halves.  I added a forward decl
for a unified comment for both head & body, and added _ddebug.site to
point at body.

DEFINE_DYNAMIC_DEBUG_METADATA now declares and initializes a 2nd
static struct var holding the _ddebug_site, and refs _ddebug to it.

dynamic_debug.c:

dynamic_debug_init() mem-usage now also counts sites.

dynamic_emit_prefix() & ddebug_change() use those moved fields; they
get a new initialized auto-var, and the field refs get adjusted as
needed to follow the field moves from one struct to the other.

   struct _ddebug_site *dc = dp->site;

ddebug_proc_show() differs slightly; it assigns to (not initializes)
the autovar, to avoid a panic when p == SEQ_START_TOKEN.

vmlinux.lds.h:

add __dyndbg_sites section, with the same align(8) and KEEP as
used in the __dyndbg section.
