elf: don't use MAP_FIXED_NOREPLACE for elf interpreter mappings
In commit b212921b13bd ("elf: don't use MAP_FIXED_NOREPLACE for elf executable mappings") we still leave MAP_FIXED_NOREPLACE in place for load_elf_interp. Unfortunately, this will cause kernel to fail to start with: 1 (init): Uhuuh, elf segment at 00003ffff7ffd000 requested but the memory is mapped already Failed to execute /init (error -17) The reason is that the elf interpreter ( has overlapping segments. readelf -l Program Headers: Type Offset VirtAddr PhysAddr FileSiz MemSiz Flags Align LOAD 0x0000000000000000 0x0000000000000000 0x0000000000000000 0x000000000002c94c 0x000000000002c94c R E 0x10000 LOAD 0x000000000002dae0 0x000000000003dae0 0x000000000003dae0 0x00000000000021e8 0x0000000000002320 RW 0x10000 LOAD 0x000000000002fe00 0x000000000003fe00 0x000000000003fe00 0x00000000000011ac 0x0000000000001328 RW 0x10000 The reason for this problem is the same as described in commit ad55eac74f20 ("elf: enforce MAP_FIXED on overlaying elf segments"). Not only executable binaries, elf interpreters (e.g. can have overlapping elf segments, so we better drop MAP_FIXED_NOREPLACE and go back to MAP_FIXED in load_elf_interp.
