x86: Make relocatable kernel work with new binutils
The CONFIG_RELOCATABLE=y option is broken with new binutils, which will make boot panic. According to Lu Hongjiu, the affected binutils are from to, which are release since Oct 22 this year. At least ubuntu 10.10 is using such binutils. See: The reason of the boot panic is that we have 'jiffies = jiffies_64;' in The jiffies isn't in any section. In kernel build, there is warning saying jiffies is an absolute address and can't be relocatable. At runtime, jiffies will have virtual address 0.
