To date, all callers of randomize_range() have set the length to 0, and
check for a zero return value.  For the current callers, the only way
to get zero returned is if end <= start.  Since they are all adding a
constant to the start address, this is unnecessary.

We can remove a bunch of needless checks by simplifying the API to do
just what everyone wants, return an address between [start, start +
range).

While we're here, s/get_random_int/get_random_long/.  No current call
site is adversely affected by get_random_int(), since all current range
requests are < UINT_MAX.  However, we should match caller expectations
to avoid coming up short (ha!) in the future.

All current callers to randomize_range() chose to use the start address
if randomize_range() failed.  Therefore, we simplify things by just
returning the start address on error.

randomize_range() will be removed once all callers have been converted
over to randomize_addr().

To prevent an underflow if start is not page aligned (but will one
would ever use a non aligned start address *and* range ? ...)

        if (range < PAGE_SIZE)
                return start;
