[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH 2/3] configure: Support for HEASLR on mingw targets

From: Alex Smith <alex.smith at warpsharp.info>

The appropriate flag for HEASLR (--high-entropy-va) is scheduled for
inclusion in the next version of binutils (2.25), doesn't hurt to
include it a little early.

Also set the image base >4GB so higher entropy gets applied to image
base randomization when used with HEASLR (8 -> 17 bits of
randomization).  Windows does this for compatibility because of "latent
pointer truncation issues".
