Kernel ASLR on amd64

Recently, I completed a Kernel ASLR implementation for NetBSD-amd64, making
NetBSD the first BSD system to support such a feature. Simply said, KASLR is a
feature that randomizes the location of the kernel in memory, making it harder
to exploit several classes of vulnerabilities, both locally (privilege
escalations) and remotely (remote code executions).
