Subject: [PATCH v5 01/21] x86, KASLR: Remove unneeded boot_params argument

From: Yinghai Lu <yinghai@...nel.org>

Since the boot_params can be found using the real_mode global variable,
there is no need to pass around a pointer to it. This slightly simplifies
the choose_kernel_location function and its callers.
