[PATCH] ia64: fix module loading for gcc-5.4




Starting from gcc-5.4+ gcc geperates MLX
instructions in more cases to refer local
symbols:
    https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/60465

That caused ia64 module loader to choke
on such instructions:
    fuse: invalid slot number 1 for IMM64

Linux kernel used to handle only case where
relocation pointed to slot=2 instruction in
the bundle. That limitation was fixed in linux
by 9c184a073bfd650cc791956d6ca79725bb682716 commit.
See http://sources.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=1433

This change lifts the slot=2 restriction from
linux kernel module loader.

Tested on 'fuse' and 'btrfs' kernel modules.
