Subject: Xen PV domain regression with KASLR enabled (kernel 3.16)

Unfortunately I have not yet figured out why this happens, but can confirm by
compiling with or without CONFIG_RANDOMIZE_BASE being set that without KASLR all
is ok, but with it enabled there are issues (actually a dom0 does not even boot
as a follow up error).

Details can be seen in [1] but basically this is always some portion of a
vmalloc allocation failing after hitting a freshly allocated PTE space not being
PTE_NONE (usually from a module load triggered by systemd-udevd). In the
non-dom0 case this repeats many times but ends in a guest that allows login. In
the dom0 case there is a more fatal error at some point causing a crash.

I have not tried this for a normal PV guest but for dom0 it also does not help
to add "nokaslr" to the kernel command-line.
