Subject: [PATCH v7 06/12] x86: pm-trace - Adapt assembly for PIE support

From: Thomas Garnier <thgarnie@...gle.com>

Change assembly to use the new _ASM_MOVABS macro instead of _ASM_MOV for
the assembly to be PIE compatible.

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