Subject[PATCH] arm64: move kimage_vaddr to .rodata
Date
From: Remi Denis-Courmont <remi.denis.courmont@huawei.com>

This datum is not referenced from .idmap.text: it does not need to be
mapped in idmap. Lets move it to .rodata as it is never written to after
early boot of the primary CPU.
(Maybe .data.ro_after_init would be cleaner though?)
