KERNELOFFSET is virtual address delta after kernel text KASLR, namely
the offset from the original default kernel text virtual address,
0xffffffff88000000.

While after memory region KASLR in kernel_randomize_memory(), the
starting address of the direct mapping of physical memory, PAGE_OFFSET,
is changed too. We need get it to analyze memory in makedumpfile/crash.
Currently we deduce it from elf program segment of kcore:
Program Headers:
Type Offset VirtAddr PhysAddr
FileSiz MemSiz Flags Align
......

LOAD 0x00000a62c0004000 0xffff8a62c0001000 0x0000000000001000
0x000000000009c000 0x000000000009c000 RWE 1000

page_offset = 0xffff8a62c0001000 - 0x0000000000001000;
Since we put the direct mapping segments at the bottom part of kcore, we
can always get page_offset right.
