Sorry, I must have missed this patch set the first time through. I
don't see any reason to wait for KASLR before taking support for
relocatable kernels, as relocatable kernelsa are useful on their own.

I'm not sure I'll have time to look at this for this cycle, but I'll try
to find some time to given that it was posted a while ago.
