Recent changes from upstream introduced a new configuration variable 
CONFIG_LSM_MMAP_MIN_ADDR, which we set to 65536 as it was done with
CONFIG_DEFAULT_MMAP_MIN_ADDR. But the new option will set a hard limit which 
makes it impossible to set a smaller value via echoing into procfs.
In order to allow this, the LSM value has to be 0 and the DEFAULT value remains 
as it is.

Verified with the kernel-test-security.py from Kees.


When all other means of communication fail, try words!
