Subject: [PATCH v7 04/12] x86: relocate_kernel - Adapt assembly for PIE support

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

Change the assembly code to use only absolute references of symbols for the
kernel to be PIE compatible.

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