Subject: [PATCH v5 22/27] x86/modules: Add option to start module section
 after kernel

Add an option so the module section is just after the mapped kernel. It
will ensure position independent modules are always at the right
distance from the kernel and do not require mcmodule=large. It also
optimize the available size for modules by getting rid of the empty
space on kernel randomization range.

 Be very careful vs. KASLR when changing anything here. The KASLR address
 range must not overlap with anything except the KASAN shadow area, which is
 correct as KASAN disables KASLR.

+If CONFIG_DYNAMIC_MODULE_BASE is enabled, the module section follows the end of
