User Manual: Warn readers about mmap and SELinux issue.
On some Linux distros, if you set the kernel /proc file /proc/sys/vm/mmap_min_addr to zero, you will probably get an SELinux violation if you're running SELinux in enforcing mode. Explain to the reader how to get around that. Signed-off-by: Robert P. J. Day <rpjday@crashcourse.ca> Signed-off-by: Holger Hans Peter Freyther <zecke@selfish.org>
