There is a reason we do the round_hint_to_min() stuff in the vm and we
recalculate that value every time dac_mmap_min_addr is change.  It's
because mmap (NOT MAP_FIXED) with a hint < profile->mmap_min_addr is
going to end up getting denied here since the VM is going to assign it
the address it wanted instead of find a new address and you are going
to deny that task.

If profile() is a per task thing, I think you are in a failed
situation and can't solve the problem wtihout intrusive VFS hooks.  If
profile is a global thing just update that global value.  In either
case, this code is wrong....
