[PATCH] mm: dup_mmap down new mmap_sem



One anomaly remains from when Andrea rationalized the responsibilities of
mmap_sem and page_table_lock: in dup_mmap we add vmas to the child holding its
page_table_lock, but not the mmap_sem which normally guards the vma list and
rbtree.  Which could be an issue for unuse_mm: though since it just walks down
the list (today with page_table_lock, tomorrow not), it's probably okay.  Will
need a memory barrier?  Oh, keep it simple, Nick and I agreed, no harm in
taking child's mmap_sem here.
