Thanks.

How about the patch below instead? It survives my testing, and I believe
it handles both cases properly.

Confirmation from the original bug reporter would obviously be a nice
bonus too :)




From: Jiri Kosina <jkosina@suse.cz>
Subject: [PATCH] binfmt_elf: fix PIE execution with randomization disabled

The case of address space randomization being disabled in runtime through
randomize_va_space sysctl is not treated properly in load_elf_binary(),
resulting in SIGKILL coming at exec() time for certain PIE-linked binaries
in case the randomization has been disabled at runtime prior to calling
exec().

Handle the randomize_va_space == 0 case the same way as if we were not
supporting .text randomization at all.

Based on original patch by H.J. Lu <hongjiu.lu@intel.com> and
Josh Boyer <jwboyer@redhat.com>
