Hi Will,
The ARM64 virtual address arrangement already ensures that all
kernel and module texts are within +/-128M, otherwise even module load
will fail. So the BUG_ON() should never happen.

Will add more comments into aarch64_insn_gen_branch_imm().

I guess a NOP should be more effecient than a "B #4" on real CPUs:)
