bloat-o-meter: include read-only data section in report
Jean Delvare [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:35:13 +0000 (16:35 -0700)]
I'm not sure why the read-only data section is excluded from the report,
it seems as relevant as the other data sections (b and d).

I've stripped the symbols starting with __mod_ as they can have their
names dynamically generated and thus comparison between binaries is not
possible.
