Subject[PATCH] x86/boot/KASLR: Fix unused variable warning
Local variable 'i' is referenced only when CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTREMOVE and
CONFIG_ACPI are defined, but definition of variable 'i' is out of guard.
If any of the two macros is undefined, below warning triggers during
build with 'make EXTRA_CFLAGS=-Wall binrpm-pkg', fix it by moving 'i'
in the guard.

arch/x86/boot/compressed/kaslr.c:698:6: warning: unused variable ‘i’ [-Wunused-variable]
