binfmt_elf: PIE: make PF_RANDOMIZE check comment more accurate
The comment I originally added in commit a3defbe5c337 ("binfmt_elf: fix PIE execution with randomization disabled") is not really 100% accurate -- sysctl is not the only way how PF_RANDOMIZE could be forcibly unset in runtime. Another option of course is direct modification of personality flags (i.e. running through setarch wrapper). Make the comment more explicit and accurate.
