SubjectRe: MAP_FIXED for ELF mappings
I made a clean up patch according to Oleg's suggestion. It's trying to
get an map area to cover total_size, then do mmap for for the 1st
program segment only. Not sure if this way is correct.

Subject: [PATCH] binfmt_elf: Clean up the elf_map

Oleg pointed out that it's really ugly to do mmap of the total_size, then
unmap the region excluding the 1st segment. The right way should be search
an unmapped area which can cover region of total_size, then map the 1st
segment only.

And also update the code comment accordingly. In below commit, the relevant
code comment is not changed to cover the ELF binary image case.
