Change the assembly code to use only relative references of symbols for the
kernel to be PIE compatible.

Early at boot, the kernel is mapped at a temporary address while preparing
the page table. To know the changes needed for the page table with KASLR,
the boot code calculate the difference between the expected address of the
kernel and the one chosen by KASLR. It does not work with PIE because all
symbols in code are relatives. Instead of getting the future relocated
virtual address, you will get the current temporary mapping. The solution
is using global variables that will be relocated as expected.

Position Independent Executable (PIE) support will allow to extended the
KASLR randomization range below the -2G memory limit.
