Subject: [PATCH v5 16/21] x86, KASLR: Add virtual address choosing function

From: Baoquan He <bhe@...hat.com>

To support randomizing the kernel virtual address separately from the
physical address, this patch adds find_random_virt_offset() to choose
a slot anywhere between LOAD_PHYSICAL_ADDR and KERNEL_IMAGE_SIZE.
Since this address is virtual, not physical, we can place the kernel
anywhere in this region, as long as it is aligned and (in the case of
kernel being larger than the slot size) placed with enough room to load
the entire kernel image.
