Subject: [PATCH] depmod: Ignore PowerPC64 ABIv2 .TOC. symbol

References: bsc#1070209
Patch-mainline: v23
Git-commit: d46136bb59c46609ee8050636f0681f2831d2225

The .TOC. symbol on the PowerPC64 ABIv2 identifies the GOT
pointer, similar to how other architectures use _GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE_.

This is not a symbol that needs relocation, and should be ignored
by depmod.
