brk randomization: introduce CONFIG_COMPAT_BRK
based on similar patch from: Pavel Machek <pavel@ucw.cz> Introduce CONFIG_COMPAT_BRK. If disabled then the kernel is free (but not obliged to) randomize the brk area. Heap randomization breaks ancient binaries, so we keep COMPAT_BRK enabled by default. Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
