This series implements support for emitting the data structures associated
with jump tables as 32-bit relative references instead of absolute
references, which take up more space on builds that target 64-bit
architectures, or implement self relocation [or both].

This series enables it for arm64 and x86, although other architectures
might benefit as well.

Patch #1 does some preparatory refactoring before patch #2 introduces the
generic pieces required for using relative references.

Patch #3 wires everything up for arm64.

Patch #4 introduces support for handling 64-bit place relative relocations
on x86_64 (see 'Changes since v1' below)

For x86, patch #5 applies some preparatory changes for the arch specific
jump label C code, which is a lot more involved than on arm64, which is
why it is split off in this case. Patch #6 wires it up for x86 as well.

Patch #7 and #8 implement the changes so that the jump_entry arrays reside
in ro_after_init memory rather than remain fully writable all of the time.

Patch #9 enables the feature for s390 (contributed by Heiko)

Changes since v2:
- fix breakage in user mode x86 kernel due to missing definition of the
  R_X86_64_PC64 symbolic constant
- add acks from Jessica and Kees
- add s390 enablement patch

Changes since v1:
- change the relative reference to the static key to a 64-bit wide one on 64
  bit architectures; this is necessary on arm64, which allows modules to
  reside anywhere within a 4 GB window covering the core kernel text, which
  means a 32-bit signed quantity with its +/- 2 GB range is insufficient.
  Note that x86_64 changes are in preparation that widen the relocation
  range as well (using the PIE linker), so I assumed that the same change
  is appropriate for x86 as well.
- add patch #4 to handle the relocations emitted by the compiler as a result
  of the change above
- added patches to move the jump_entry arrays to ro_after_init memory, so
  that they are not as easily corrupted or manipulated.
- add Will's ack to patch #3
