Description

I asked in the IRC and it seems haiku doesn't have ASLR so I figured I'd suggest it. ASLR is Address Space Layout Randomization (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Address_space_layout_randomization) it's used to protect from memory exploits by randomly arranging the stack, heap, etc... I thought while haiku isn't a huge target it could be down the line and it would be good to be ahead of the game rather than doing it because we have to. It'd nice to see something like this in haiku.
