builtin_modules.patch: add _PyBUILTIN_MODINIT_FUNC macro and use it on modules which are builtins on POSIX.

I checked: it's not necessary to modify Modules/config.c to make the symbol hidden: only the C code in Modules/ need to set the attribute on the function.

So Modules/config.c, Modules/, Modules/makesetup, PC/config.c, Tools/freeze/, ... are unchanged by the patch.


On Linux with GCC >= 4.0, you can test manually to hide PyInit_xxx symbols using:

#define _PyBUILTIN_MODINIT_FUNC __attribute__((visibility("hidden"))) PyObject*
