Subject[PATCH v8 1/6] arch: enable relative relocations for arm64, power and x86
Date
Before updating certain subsystems to use place relative 32-bit
relocations in special sections, to save space and reduce the
number of absolute relocations that need to be processed at runtime
by relocatable kernels, introduce the Kconfig symbol and define it
for some architectures that should be able to support and benefit
from it.
