Subject: [PATCH v7 12/12] x86/alternatives: Adapt assembly for PIE support

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

Change the assembly options to work with pointers instead of integers.

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