Subject: [PATCH v2 1/1] powerpc: mm: support ARCH_MMAP_RND_BITS

powerpc: arch_mmap_rnd() uses hard-coded values, (23-PAGE_SHIFT) for
32-bit and (30-PAGE_SHIFT) for 64-bit, 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 default values as new minimums.

This patch makes sure that now powerpc mmap arch_mmap_rnd() approach
is similar to other ARCHs like x86, arm64 and arm.
