x86/mm/KASLR: Increase BRK pages for KASLR memory randomization
Default implementation expects 6 pages maximum are needed for low page allocations. If KASLR memory randomization is enabled, the worse case of e820 layout would require 12 pages (no large pages). It is due to the PUD level randomization and the variable e820 memory layout. This bug was found while doing extensive testing of KASLR memory randomization on different type of hardware.
