DEFAULT_MMAP_MIN_ADDR change breaks ssh on arm

The following change

  r10769 | maks | 2008-03-10 17:03:03 +0100 (Mon, 10 Mar 2008) | 8 lines

  security: set DEFAULT_MMAP_MIN_ADDR to 65536

  Low address space to protect from user allocation, see
  a5ecbcb8c13ea8a822d243bf782d0dc9525b4f84, runtime tunable on
  /proc/sys/vm/mmap_min_addr. let's see if we get any fallout.
  double checked after Kconfig recommendation that fedora uses
  that recommendation too.

breaks ssh on arm.  While root can still log in via ssh, normal users
cannot.  ssh almost manages to log in but when it comes to starting a
shell the connection simply closes.  Changing DEFAULT_MMAP_MIN_ADDR
back to 0 fixes this.

maks, should I simply set DEFAULT_MMAP_MIN_ADDR to 0 on ARM or should
I report this to the SE Linux folks or someone else?  I've no idea how
SE Linux works, so any help is welcome.
