fs/binfmt_elf.c: fix bug in loading of PIE binaries
With CONFIG_ARCH_BINFMT_ELF_RANDOMIZE_PIE enabled, and a normal top-down address allocation strategy, load_elf_binary() will attempt to map a PIE binary into an address range immediately below mm->mmap_base. Unfortunately, load_elf_ binary() does not take account of the need to allocate sufficient space for the entire binary which means that, while the first PT_LOAD segment is mapped below mm->mmap_base, the subsequent PT_LOAD segment(s) end up being mapped above mm->mmap_base into the are that is supposed to be the "gap" between the stack and the binary. Since the size of the "gap" on x86_64 is only guaranteed to be 128MB this means that binaries with large data segments > 128MB can end up mapping part of their data segment over their stack resulting in corruption of the stack (and the data segment once the binary starts to run). Any PIE binary with a data segment > 128MB is vulnerable to this although address randomization means that the actual gap between the stack and the end of the binary is normally greater than 128MB. The larger the data segment of the binary the higher the probability of failure. Fix this by calculating the total size of the binary in the same way as load_elf_interp().
