Effect of ELF headers on layout

While the ELF headers don't affect where the program's mmaps and mallocs get memory, they do determine where the program itself gets loaded. That means all the stuff that's in the ELF file - the text section, data section, etc.
Note that the layout change here doesn't affect where the program gets loaded.
