Subject[PATCH 0/3] x86/mm/doc: Clean up mm.txt
This clean up is suggested by Ingo.

It firstly fix the confusions in mm layout tables by unifying
each memory region description in the consistent style.

Secondly take the KASLR words out of the mm layout tables to make
it as a separate section to only list mm layout in non-KASLR case.
Then add KASLR document at the end of mm.txt.

Meanwhile update description about KERNEL_IMAGE_SIZE in
arch/x86/include/asm/page_64_types.h .

Ingo helped to prettify the patch log and code comment, repost them
after updating accordign to Ingo's suggestions.


Resend v2 since some typo and incorrect descriptions found in v1 post.
