Subject: [PATCH v2 05/29] ARM: head-common.S: use PC-relative insn sequence for idmap creation

Replace the open coded PC relative offset calculations involving
__turn_mmu_on and __turn_mmu_on_end with a pair of adr_l invocations.
This ensures these quantities are invariant under runtime relocation.
