FROMLIST: arm: mm: support ARCH_MMAP_RND_BITS.
(cherry picked from commit https://lkml.org/lkml/2015/12/21/341)
arm: arch_mmap_rnd() uses a hard-code value of 8 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 8 as the minimum acceptable value.
