"vm_committed_as.count" could be accessed concurrently as reported by
KCSAN,

 read to 0xffffffff923164f8 of 8 bytes by task 1268 on cpu 38:

 write to 0xffffffff923164f8 of 8 bytes by task 1265 on cpu 41:

  do_syscall_64+0x91/0xb47
  entry_SYSCALL_64_after_hwframe+0x49/0xbe

The warning is almost impossible to trigger according to the commit
82f71ae4a2b8 ("mm: catch memory commitment underflow") but leave it for
now to catch any possible unbalanced vm_unacct_memory() in the future.
Since only the read is operating as lockless, mark it as an intentional
data race using the data_race() macro.
