Subject: [PATCH 3/4] x86/boot: Remove runtime relocations from head_{32,64}.S

The BFD linker generates runtime relocations for z_input_len and
z_output_len, even though they are absolute symbols.

Work around this by defining two variables input_len and output_len in
addition to the symbols, and use them via position-independent
references.

This eliminates the last two runtime relocations in the head code and
allows us to drop the -z noreloc-overflow flag to the linker.
