kallsyms: fix absolute addresses for kASLR

Currently symbols that are absolute addresses are incorrectly displayed
in /proc/kallsyms if the kernel is loaded with kASLR.

The problem was that the scripts/kallsyms.c file which generates the
array of symbol names and addresses uses an relocatable value for all
symbols, even absolute symbols. This patch fixes that.

Several kallsyms output in different boot states for comparison:

$ egrep '_(stext|_per_cpu_(start|end))' /root/kallsyms.nokaslr
0000000000000000 D __per_cpu_start
0000000000014280 D __per_cpu_end
ffffffff810001c8 T _stext
$ egrep '_(stext|_per_cpu_(start|end))' /root/kallsyms.kaslr1
000000001f200000 D __per_cpu_start
000000001f214280 D __per_cpu_end
ffffffffa02001c8 T _stext
$ egrep '_(stext|_per_cpu_(start|end))' /root/kallsyms.kaslr2
000000000d400000 D __per_cpu_start
000000000d414280 D __per_cpu_end
ffffffff8e4001c8 T _stext
$ egrep '_(stext|_per_cpu_(start|end))' /root/kallsyms.kaslr-fixed
0000000000000000 D __per_cpu_start
0000000000014280 D __per_cpu_end
ffffffffadc001c8 T _stext
