Subject[PATCH v2 0/9] randomize kernel physical address and virtual address separately
Currently kaslr only randomize physical address of kernel loading, then add the delta
to virtual address of kernel text mapping. Because kernel virtual address can only be
[0xffffffff80000000, 0xffffffffc0000000], so physical address can only be randomized

So hpa and Vivek suggested the randomization should be done separately for both physical
and virtual address. In this patchset the behavior is changed. Randomize both the physical
address where kernel is decompressed and the virtual address where kernel text is mapped.
And physical address can be randomized from where vmlinux was linked to load to maximum
physical memory, possibly near 64T. While virtual address can get a random offset from load
address to CONFIG_RANDOMIZE_BASE_MAX_OFFSET, then added to __START_KERNEL_map. And
relocation handling only depends on virtual address randomization. Means if and only if
virtual address is randomized to a different value, we add the delta to the offset of
kernel relocs.

Thanks to Yinghai's patch which make kernel be able to load above 4G in boot stage,
physical address can be randomized to anywhere, even near 64T.

Thank Andy Lutomirski for his adding idt patch, finally it's not used in this patchset
since I didn't make the #PF handler work well. I believe it does work, but I didn't
make it. Will check why later. Thanks anyway.

Baoquan He (8):
remove a unused function parameter
a bug that relocation can not be handled when kernel is loaded above
introduce struct slot_area to manage randomization slot info
add mem_min_overlap to find the first avoid region within a memory
change process_e820_entry to store slot info into slot_area
get the random phy addr according to slot_area info
introduce fetch_random_virt_offset to randomize the kernel text
mapping address
change the relocations behavior for kaslr on x86_64

Yinghai Lu (1):
make kernel be able to load above 4G in boot stage
