x86/mm/KASLR: Increase BRK pages for KASLR memory randomization

Default implementation expects 6 pages maximum are needed for low page
allocations. If KASLR memory randomization is enabled, the worse case
of e820 layout would require 12 pages (no large pages). It is due to the
PUD level randomization and the variable e820 memory layout.

This bug was found while doing extensive testing of KASLR memory
randomization on different type of hardware.
