Subject[PATCH 6/6] powerpc/fsl_booke/kaslr: rename kaslr-booke32.rst to kaslr-booke.rst and add 64bit part
Date
Now we support both 32 and 64 bit KASLR for fsl booke. Add document for
64 bit part and rename kaslr-booke32.rst to kaslr-booke.rst.

+KASLR for Freescale BookE64
+---------------------------
+
+The implementation for Freescale BookE64 is similar as BookE32. One
+difference is that Freescale BookE64 set up a TLB mapping of 1G during
+booting. Another difference is that ppc64 needs the kernel to be
+64K-aligned. So we can randomize the kernel in this 1G mapping and make
+it 64K-aligned. This can save some code to creat another TLB map at early
+boot. The disadvantage is that we only have about 1G/64K = 16384 slots to

To enable KASLR, set CONFIG_RANDOMIZE_BASE = y. If KASLR is enable and you
want to disable it at runtime, add "nokaslr" to the kernel cmdline.
