When referring to config variables in comments and changelogs I'd suggest a bit
more verbosity:

s/CONFIG_RANDOMIZE_TEXT_OFFSET
/CONFIG_RANDOMIZE_TEXT_OFFSET=y

... because at first I thought (based on the name) that
CONFIG_RANDOMIZE_TEXT_OFFSET is an actual integer offset value - while it's a
bool. The =y makes the bool nature obvious.

( Similarly, when negated the canonical way to refer to it is
!CONFIG_RANDOMIZE_TEXT_OFFSET. )

> + offset |= (TEXT_OFFSET % EFI_KIMG_ALIGN);

The parentheses are not needed here I think.

Thanks,

Ingo
