[PATCH v7 05/14] x86/alternative: initializing temporary mm for patching




To prevent improper use of the PTEs that are used for text patching, we
want to use a temporary mm struct. We initailize it by copying the init
mm.

The address that will be used for patching is taken from the lower area
that is usually used for the task memory. Doing so prevents the need to
frequently synchronize the temporary-mm (e.g., when BPF programs are
installed), since different PGDs are used for the task memory.

Finally, we randomize the address of the PTEs to harden against exploits
that use these PTEs.
