When I was originally pushing PIE executable randomization, I have been 
thinking about ways to solve this.

In theory, we could start playing games with load_addr in 
load_elf_interp() and randomizing it completely independently from mmap() 
base randomization, but the question is whether it's really worth the 
hassle and binfmt_elf code complication. I am not convinced.
