Subject[PATCH 2/4] vma_adjust: fix the copying of anon_vma chains

From: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

Subject: [PATCH 2/4] vma_adjust: fix the copying of anon_vma chains

When we move the boundaries between two vma's due to things like
mprotect, we need to make sure that the anon_vma of the pages that got
moved from one vma to another gets properly copied around. And that was
not always the case, in this rather hard-to-follow code sequence.

Clarify the code, and fix it so that it copies the anon_vma from the
right source.
