As reported on LP: #1705707 (Xenial update to 4.4.78 stable release),
commit eab09532d40090698b05a07c1c87f39fdbc5fab5 upstream (binfmt_elf: use
ELF_ET_DYN_BASE only for PIE) broke Address Sanitizer. The issue was fixed
by c715b72c1ba406f133217b509044c38d8e714a37 (mm: revert x86_64 and arm64
ELF_ET_DYN_BASE base changes) by partially reverting the changes.

The following patch is a clean cherry pick of the fix, compile tested on 

Kees Cook (1):
  mm: revert x86_64 and arm64 ELF_ET_DYN_BASE base changes
