kbuild: set correct KBUILD_MODNAME when using well known kernel symbols as module names

This patch fixes a problem when we use well known kernel symbols as module

For example, if module source name is current.c, idle_stack.c or etc.,
we have a bad KBUILD_MODNAME value.
For example, KBUILD_MODNAME will be "get_current()" instead of "current", or
"(init_thread_union.stack)" instead of "idle_task".

The trick is to define a stringify macro on the commandline - named
KBUILD_STR for namespace reasons - and then to stringify the module

There are a few uses of KBUILD_MODNAME throughout the tree but the usage
is for debug and will not be harmed by this change so left untouched for now.

While at it KBUILD_BASENAME was changed too. Any spinlock usage in the
unix module would have created wrong section names without it.
Usage in spinlock.h fixed so it no longer stringify KBUILD_BASENAME.

Original patch from Ustyogov Roman - all bugs introduced by me.
