(resending because DKIM got mangled on the first try by the kvack
list, hopefully setting sendemail.transferEncoding to
quoted-printable helps...)

 - add note about how this also fixes arch/um/ locking in patch 1
   (Johannes Berg)
 - use IS_DEFINED() instead of #ifdef in patch 2 (Jason Gunthorpe)
 - fix commit message of patch 1/2 and be more verbose about where
   the old mmap lock is taken (Michel, Jason)
 - resending without mangling the diffs :/ (Michel, Jason)

These two patches replace "mmap locking API: don't check locking
if the mm isn't live yet"[1], which is currently in the mmotm tree,
and should be placed in the same spot where the old patch was.

While I originally said that this would be an alternative
patch (meaning that the existing patch would have worked just
as well), the new patches actually address an additional issue
that the old patch missed (bprm->vma is used after the switch
to the new mm).

I have boot-tested these patches on x64-64 (with lockdep) and
!MMU arm (the latter with both FLAT and ELF).
