[Xen-devel] [PATCH livepatch-build-tools] create-diff-object: Include string sections later

... when all symbols have their status and include flags processed.

Processing special sections may include additional symbols. String
sections (.rodata*) are included iff they are referenced by at least
one symbol. Thus, in order to decide if string section should be
included or not, all symbols must be evaluated first.
