Subject: [PATCH v5 24/27] x86/mm: Make the x86 GOT read-only

The GOT is changed during early boot when relocations are applied. Make
it read-only directly. This table exists only for PIE binary.

Position Independent Executable (PIE) support will allow to extend the
KASLR randomization range 0xffffffff80000000.
