Subject: [PATCH 1/6] kbuild: Remove relocations from kallsyms table

From: Andi Kleen <ak@...ux.intel.com>

Remove the ELF relocations from the kallsyms_address[] table.
Instead we just store offsets to _text and relocate that while
accessing the kallsyms table. This is done with a new
kallsyms_offsets[] table. With these changes .tmp_kallsyms*.o
becomes relocation free.

In theory this would also allow to shrink the kallsyms table
on 64bit by using offsets.
