The problem is that the test is designed to see that strip works to
properly to remove the .debug sections and remove relocations against
.debug sections for a .ko file. But the hello_riscv64.ko file doesn't
contain any .debug sections so it trivially succeeds. Ulf fixed the
test to make sure strip actually does any work by removing the old
debug files. This shows the current hello_riscv64.ko failing.

If you could regenerate the file with -g so that it does contain .debug
sections that would help us fix the testcase.
