Subject: [PATCH v5 09/21] x86, KASLR: Correctly bounds-check relocations

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

Relocation handling performs bounds checking on the resulting calculated
addresses. The existing code uses output_len (VO size plus relocs size) as
the max address. This is not right since the max_addr check should stop at
the end of VO and exclude bss, brk, etc, which follows.  The valid range
should be VO [_text, __bss_start] in the loaded physical address space.

This patch adds an export for __bss_start in voffset.h and uses it to
get the correct max_addr.
