Actually in that board, the kptr_restrict=0 already in both case: 4.9
and 4.14 Kernel boards.
In another board with 4.14 and kptr_restrict=2, I see that the
addresses are 00 always.

I further checked that when I enable this config:
CONFIG_DEBUG_CONSOLE_UNHASHED_POINTERS,
then the addresses are remaining the same in every boot.
But this particular config is not present in 4.9 Kernel.
So, I think it is controlled using this config.
