Commit Message

Re-mmap executable segments if possible instead of using mprotect
to add PROT_BTI. This allows using BTI protection with security
policies that prevent mprotect with PROT_EXEC.

If the fd of the ELF module is not available because it was kernel
mapped then mprotect is used and failures are ignored.  It is
expected that linux kernel will add PROT_BTI when mapping a module
(current linux as of version 5.9 does not do this).

Computing the mapping parameters follows the logic of
_dl_map_object_from_fd more closely now.

Fixes bug 26831.

What's the performance of this on execve-heavy workloads, such as kernel
or glibc builds?  Hopefully it's cheap because these mappings have not
been faulted in yet.

Thanks,
Florian
