arm64/mm: Remove hack in mmap randomize layout
Since commit 8a0a9bd4db63 ('random: make get_random_int() more random'), get_random_int() returns a random value for each call, so comment and hack introduced in mmap_rnd() as part of commit 1d18c47c735e ('arm64: MMU fault handling and page table management') are incorrects. Commit 1d18c47c735e seems to use the same hack introduced by commit a5adc91a4b44 ('powerpc: Ensure random space between stack and mmaps'), latter copied in commit 5a0efea09f42 ('sparc64: Sharpen address space randomization calculations.'). But both architectures were cleaned up as part of commit fa8cbaaf5a68 ('powerpc+sparc64/mm: Remove hack in mmap randomize layout') as hack is no more needed since commit 8a0a9bd4db63. So the present patch removes the comment and the hack around get_random_int() on AArch64's mmap_rnd(). Cc: David S.
