 You need to explain this a bit - the PAX_ASLR code is obfuscated (for
 example nxr can not even find the pax_aslr() definition).
 If you move the ASLR up this far, you may break addr == 0 handling further
 A better fix probably is to
  a) make the pax_aslr() call emulation specific
  b) fix pax_aslr() to respect the the emulation specifics/VA settings of
     the passed lwp (including VM_MAP_TOPDOWN and the limits)
