x86/pti: Disallow global kernel text with RANDSTRUCT

commit 26d35ca6c3776784f8156e1d6f80cc60d9a2a915

RANDSTRUCT derives its hardening benefits from the attacker's lack of
knowledge about the layout of kernel data structures. Keep the kernel
image non-global in cases where RANDSTRUCT is in use to help keep the
layout a secret.

Fixes: 8c06c7740 (x86/pti: Leave kernel text global for !PCID)
