[Xen-devel] [RFC v2 07/23] x86: relocate_kernel - Adapt assembly for PIE support

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

Position Independent Executable (PIE) support will allow to extended the
KASLR randomization range below the -2G memory limit.
