This patch removes the risk path in handle_userfault() then we will be
sure that the callers of handle_mm_fault() will know that the VMAs
might have changed.  Meanwhile with previous patch we don't lose
responsiveness as well since the core mm code now can handle the
nonfatal userspace signals even if we return VM_FAULT_RETRY.
