You'll be wanting to update the documentation.
Documentation/sysctl/kernel.txt and
Documentation/admin-guide/kernel-parameters.txt.

The handling of randomize_va_space is peculiar. Rather than being a
bitfield which independently selects different modes, it is treated as
a scalar: the larger the value, the more stuff we randomize.

I can see the sense in that (and I wonder what randomize_va_space=5
will do). But it is... odd.

Why did you select randomize_va_space=4 for this? Is there a mode 3
already and we forgot to document it? Or did you leave a gap for
something? If the former, please feel free to fix the documentation
(in a separate, preceding patch) while you're in there ;)

This function is just dead code if CONFIG_MMU=n, yes? Let's add the
ifdefs to make it go away in that case.

What does the magic 10000 mean? Isn't a comment needed explaining this?
