remove support for un-needed _extratext section

When passing a zero address to kallsyms_lookup(), the kernel thought it was
a valid kernel address, even if it is not.  This is because is_ksym_addr()
called is_kernel_extratext() and checked against labels that don't exist on
many archs (which default as zero).  Since PPC was the only kernel which
defines _extra_text, (in 2005), and no longer needs it, this patch removes
_extra_text support.
