Subject[RFC PATCH v4 03/12] __wr_after_init: x86_64: randomize mapping offset
Date
x86_64 specialized way of defining the base address for the alternate
mapping used by write-rare.

Since the kernel address space spans across 64TB and it is mapped into a
used address space of 128TB, the kernel address space can be shifted by a
random offset that is up to 64TB and page aligned.

This is accomplished by providing arch-specific version of the function
__init_wr_base()
