Subject: [PATCH v2 1/3] module: Prepare for addition of new ro_after_init sections

For the purposes of hardening modules by adding sections to
ro_after_init sections, prepare for addition of new ro_after_init
entries which we do in future patches. Create a table to which new
entries could be added later. This makes it less error prone and reduce
code duplication.
