backwards compatible ld.so patch

Attached is a patch that changes the MAP_BASE_ADDR macro to one that Dan
mentioned in his question about a backwards-compatible change to ld.so
that allows both new and old shlibs to run.

This seems to work -- I've run perl (with an old-binutils libperl.so), with
a new-binutils built ld.so and libc.so, and it works fine.  The comment above
the change should probably be updated to indicate the new state of things,
as well...

Comments?
