arm64: kernel: replace early 64-bit literal loads with move-immediates

When building a relocatable kernel, we currently rely on the fact that
early 64-bit literal loads need to be deferred to after the relocation
has been performed only if they involve symbol references, and not if
they involve assemble time constants. While this is not an unreasonable
assumption to make, it is better to switch to movk/movz sequences, since
these are guaranteed to be resolved at link time, simply because there are
no dynamic relocation types to describe them.
