Subject: [PATCH v6 kspp-next 16/22] livepatch: only match unique symbols when using fgkaslr

From: Kristen Carlson Accardi <kristen@...ux.intel.com>

If any type of function granular randomization is enabled, the sympos
algorithm will fail, as it will be impossible to resolve symbols when
there are duplicates using the previous symbol position.

Override the value of sympos to always be zero if fgkaslr is enabled for
either the core kernel or modules, forcing the algorithm
to require that only unique symbols are allowed to be patched.
