FROMLIST: x86: mm: support ARCH_MMAP_RND_BITS.
(cherry picked from commit https://lkml.org/lkml/2015/12/21/339)
x86: arch_mmap_rnd() uses hard-coded values, 8 for 32-bit and 28 for
64-bit, to generate the random offset for the mmap base address.
This value represents a compromise between increased ASLR
effectiveness and avoiding address-space fragmentation. Replace it
with a Kconfig option, which is sensibly bounded, so that platform
developers may choose where to place this compromise. Keep default
values as new minimums.
