Now we support both 32 and 64 bit KASLR for fsl booke. Add document for
64 bit part and rename kaslr-booke32.rst to kaslr-booke.rst.

+The implementation for Freescale BookE64 is similar as BookE32. One
+difference is that Freescale BookE64 set up a TLB mapping of 1G during

+64K-aligned. So we can randomize the kernel in this 1G mapping and make

 To enable KASLR, set CONFIG_RANDOMIZE_BASE = y. If KASLR is enable and you
 want to disable it at runtime, add "nokaslr" to the kernel cmdline.
