arm64: fix alignment when RANDOMIZE_TEXT_OFFSET is enabled

With ARM64_64K_PAGES and RANDOMIZE_TEXT_OFFSET enabled, we hit the
following issue on the boot:

Commit 7eb90f2f

 ("arm64: cover the .head.text section in the .text
segment mapping") removed the alignment between the .head.text and .text
sections, and used the _text rather than the _stext interval for mapping
the .text segment.

Prior to this commit _stext was always section aligned and didn't cause
any issue even when RANDOMIZE_TEXT_OFFSET was enabled. Since that
alignment has been removed and _text is used to map the .text segment,
we need ensure _text is always page aligned when RANDOMIZE_TEXT_OFFSET
is enabled.

This patch adds logic to TEXT_OFFSET fuzzing to ensure that the offset
is always aligned to the kernel page size. To ensure this, we rely on
the PAGE_SHIFT being available via Kconfig.
