[RFC] x86/vdso: Align vdso after searching for free area




There is errata for AMD family 15h CPUs [1] and since
commit dfb09f9b7ab03 ("x86, amd: Avoid cache aliasing penalties on AMD
family 15h") bits [14:12] are being cleared for shared libraries.
Also per-boot ASLR applies over upper bits by OR directly over the
address.

As we need special alignment and lower bits values to be set, it makes
only a little sense to call get_unmapped_area() after calculating the
address. It also can lead to random crashes if get_unmapped_area()
actually changes/aligns the address, which we observed on 15h CPU.
Usually it's not a problem as there isn't many mappings (except possibly
ld.so, uprobes?) and result address is the same before/after
get_unmapped_area().

Move align_vdso_addr() after get_unmapped_area() to make sure that
errata for AMD 15h is always applied.
