x86/build/64: Force the linker to use 2MB page size

Binutils 2.31 will enable -z separate-code by default for x86 to avoid
mixing code pages with data to improve cache performance as well as
security.  To reduce x86-64 executable and shared object sizes, the
maximum page size is reduced from 2MB to 4KB.  But x86-64 kernel must
be aligned to 2MB.  Pass -z max-page-size=0x200000 to linker to force
2MB page size regardless of the default page size used by linker.

Tested with Linux kernel 4.15.6 on x86-64.
