scripts/nsdeps: use alternative sed delimiter (2019-10-23 11:21:06 +0200)

Modules fixes for v5.4-rc5

- Revert __ksymtab_$namespace.$symbol naming scheme back to
__ksymtab_$symbol, as it was causing issues with depmod. Instead,
have modpost extract a symbol's namespace from __kstrtabns and

- Fix `make nsdeps` for out of tree kernel builds (make O=...) caused by
unescaped '/'. Use a different sed delimiter to avoid this problem.
