Subject: [PATCH v3 RESEND 2/2] x86/mm/KASLR: Fix the size of vmemmap section

kernel_randomize_memory() hardcodes the size of vmemmap section as 1 TB,
to support the maximum amount of system RAM in 4-level paging mode, 64 TB.

However, 1 TB is not enough for vmemmap in 5-level paging mode. Assuming
the size of struct page is 64 Bytes, to support 4 PB system RAM in 5-level,
64 TB of vmemmap area is needed. The wrong hardcoding may cause vmemmap
stamping into the following cpu_entry_area section, if KASLR puts vmemmap
very close to cpu_entry_area , and the actual area of vmemmap is much bigger
than 1 TB.

So here calculate the actual size of vmemmap region, then align up to 1 TB
boundary. In 4-level it's always 1 TB. In 5-level it's adjusted on demand.
The current code reserves 0.5 PB for vmemmap in 5-level. In this new method,
the left space can be saved to join randomization to increase the entropy.
