Ross and I still bouncing some ideas. We came to the conclusion that
putting mle_header into kernel .rodata.kernel_info section or even
arch/x86/boot/compressed/kernel_info.S file would be the easiest thing
to do at this point. Of course I would suggest some renaming too. E.g.
.rodata.kernel_info to .rodata.kernel_headers, etc. Does it make sense
for you?

Daniel
