scripts/gdb: fix lx-symbols 'gdb.error' while loading modules
Commit ed66f991bb19 ("module: Refactor section attr into bin attribute") removed the 'name' field from 'struct module_sect_attr' triggering the following error when invoking lx-symbols: (gdb) lx-symbols loading vmlinux scanning for modules in linux/build loading @0xffffffffc014f000: linux/build/drivers/net/tun.ko Python Exception <class 'gdb.error'> There is no member named name.: Error occurred in Python: There is no member named name. This patch fixes the issue taking the module name from the 'struct attribute'.
