find_symbol() returns the first symbol found in the hash table. This
table is global, so it may return a symbol from an unexpected module.

There is a case where we want to search for a symbol with a given name
in a specified module.

Add sym_find_with_module(), which receives the module pointer as the
second argument. It is equivalent to find_module() if NULL is passed
as the module pointer.
