It depends on 2 variables: the number of load commands that need to be
added (num_unexec_regions) and text_seg_lowest_offset.

num_unexec_regions jumps around a lot, doing "make clean && make" over
and over it'll be different every time. Somewhere between 12 and 34.

text_seg_lowest_offset seems more stable, but it still changes. When I
first unpacked the tarball and compiled, text_seg_lowest_offset was very
low: 0x17c0. This stayed constant for about an hour while I was
debugging this (adding debug prints) and then mysteriously jumped up to
0x24f0 at which point the unexec started succeeding without the change
to headerpad_extra.

I just unpacked a clean pretest source directory and
text_seg_lowest_offset was 0x17a0 and unexec failed.

Doing
  (make clean && make) 2>&1 | grep "Lowest offset of all sections"
over and over gives me:

Lowest offset of all sections in __TEXT segment:   0x17a0
Lowest offset of all sections in __TEXT segment:   0x17a0
Lowest offset of all sections in __TEXT segment:   0x17a0
Lowest offset of all sections in __TEXT segment:   0x17a0
Lowest offset of all sections in __TEXT segment:   0x17a0
Lowest offset of all sections in __TEXT segment:   0x17a0

Though one of those times it didn't fail (presumably because
num_unexec_regions was low enough).
