The stack randomization feature in the Linux kernel before 3.19.1 on
64-bit platforms uses incorrect data types for the results of bitwise
left-shift operations, which makes it easier for attackers to bypass
the ASLR protection mechanism by predicting the address of the top of
the stack, related to the randomize_stack_top function in
fs/binfmt_elf.c and the stack_maxrandom_size function in
