arm64: Add support for relocating the kernel with RELR relocations
RELR is a relocation packing format for relative relocations. The format is described in a generic-abi proposal: https://groups.google.com/d/topic/generic-abi/bX460iggiKg/discussion The LLD linker can be instructed to pack relocations in the RELR format by passing the flag --pack-dyn-relocs=relr. This patch adds a new config option, CONFIG_RELR. Enabling this option instructs the linker to pack vmlinux's relative relocations in the RELR format, and causes the kernel to apply the relocations at startup along with the RELA relocations. RELA relocations still need to be applied because the linker will emit RELA relative relocations if they are unrepresentable in the RELR format (i.e. address not a multiple of 2). Enabling CONFIG_RELR reduces the size of a defconfig kernel image with CONFIG_RANDOMIZE_BASE by 3.5MB/16% uncompressed, or 550KB/5% compressed (lz4).
