Since commit 8a0a9bd4db63bc45e301, this comment in mmap_rnd() does not
hold true as the value returned by get_random_int() will in fact be

Patch

different every single call. Remove the comment and simplify the code
back to its original desired form.

This reverts commit a5adc91a4b44b5d1 which is no longer necessary and
also fixes the sparc code that copied this same adjustment.
