Automatic randomization only happen on struct that are entirely
function pointers.

See:
https://git.kernel.org/linus/313dd1b629219db50cad532dba6a3b3b22ffe622

And:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/kees/linux.git/commit/?id=914e2dfc61195a95868ae5c750690a7f1c87bc66

If you have any structures that are shared externally from the kernel,
I can mark them with __no_randomize_layout.
