Fix a regression introduced by

    brk: check the lower bound properly

The check in sys_brk() on minimum value the brk might have must take
CONFIG_COMPAT_BRK setting into account.  When this option is turned on
(i.e.  we support ancient legacy binaries, e.g.  libc5-linked stuff), the
lower bound on brk value is mm->end_code, otherwise the brk start is
allowed to be arbitrarily shifted.
