The module namespace produces __strtab_ns_<sym> symbols to store
namespace strings, but it does not guarantee the name uniqueness.
This is a potential problem because we have exported symbols starting
with "ns_".

For example, kernel/capability.c exports the following symbols:

  EXPORT_SYMBOL(ns_capable);
  EXPORT_SYMBOL(capable);

Assume a situation where those are converted as follows:

  EXPORT_SYMBOL_NS(ns_capable, some_namespace);
  EXPORT_SYMBOL_NS(capable, some_namespace);

The former expands to "__kstrtab_ns_capable" and "__kstrtab_ns_ns_capable",
and the latter to "__kstrtab_capable" and "__kstrtab_ns_capable".
Then, we have the duplicated "__kstrtab_ns_capable".

To ensure the uniqueness, rename "__kstrtab_ns_*" to "__kstrtabns_*".
