x86, boot: make kernel_alignment adjustable; new bzImage fields
Make the kernel_alignment field adjustable; this allows us to set it to a large value (intended to be 16 MB to avoid ZONE_DMA contention, memory holes and other weirdness) while a smart bootloader can still force a loading at a lesser alignment if absolutely necessary. Also export pref_address (preferred loading address, corresponding to the link-time address) and init_size, the total amount of linear memory the kernel will require during initialization. [ Impact: allows better kernel placement, gives bootloader more info ] Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>
