    Subject[PATCH] remove GPL restriction from set_dumpable()
    From: Jiri Kosina <jkosina@suse.cz>

    remove GPL restriction from set_dumpable()

    Commit 6c5d5238 introduced a set_dumpable() function that replaced the
    direct access to mm_struct->dumpable. I don't think there is any reason to
    restrict this function to EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL() -- previously any module
    could modify current->mm->dumpable without any resitrictions, so it makes
    a little sense to turn this into 'internal interface' at once.

    There in fact are 3rd party modules that modify the dumpable flag, and
    this patch should fix the situation for them once again (for example
    vmware).
