Sounds good to me, but won't large-memory users in 32-bit get annoyed?

A setuid/setgid exec will also get ADDR_COMPAT_LAYOUT cleared in
bprm_fill_uid() (but not for fs-caps), so that'll keep things from
getting layout-controlled. Thanks!

(ADDR_COMPAT_LAYOUT isn't cleared for capability elevations, though, I think.)
