x86/realmode: Explicitly set entry point via ENTRY in linker script

Linking with ld.lld via

$ make LD=ld.lld

produces the warning:

ld.lld: warning: cannot find entry symbol _start; defaulting to 0x1000

Linking with ld.bfd shows the default entry is 0x1000:

$ readelf -h arch/x86/realmode/rm/realmode.elf | grep Entry
Entry point address: 0x1000

While ld.lld is being pedantic, just set the entry point explicitly,
instead of depending on the implicit default. The symbol pa_text_start
refers to the start of the .text section, which may not be at 0x1000 if
the preceding sections listed in arch/x86/realmode/rm/realmode.lds.S
were large enough. This matches behavior in arch/x86/boot/setup.ld.
