EXPERT Kconfig menu: fix broken EXPERT menu

Clean up the EXPERT menu (yet again).

Move FHANDLE and CHECKPOINT_RESTORE into the primary EXPERT menu since
they already depend on EXPERT.

Move BPF_SYSCALL and USERFAULTFD out of the EXPERT Kconfig symbols menu
list since they do not depend on EXPERT and were breaking the continuity
of that menu list.

Move all of the KALLSYMS Kconfig symbols to the end of the EXPERT menu.
This separates the kernel services from the build options.

This patch depends on [PATCH] pci: move PCI_QUIRKS to the PCI bus menu
(https://lkml.org/lkml/2017/11/2/907).

help
Normally kallsyms only contains the symbols of functions for nicer
OOPS messages and backtraces (i.e., symbols from the text and inittext
sections). This is sufficient for most cases. And only in very rare
cases (e.g., when a debugger is used) all symbols are required (e.g.,
names of variables from the data sections, etc).
This option makes sure that all symbols are loaded into the kernel
image (i.e., symbols from all sections) in cost of increased kernel
size (depending on the kernel configuration, it may be 300KiB or
something like this).
Say N unless you really need all symbols.

an absolute value in the range [0, S32_MAX] or a relative value in the

address encountered in the image.
On 64-bit builds, this reduces the size of the address table by 50%,
but more importantly, it results in entries whose values are build
time constants, and no relocation pass is required at runtime to fix
up the entries based on the runtime load address of the kernel.
