Subject[PATCH -v2] rmap: fix anon_vma_fork() memory leak
Fix a memory leak in anon_vma_fork(), where we fail to tear down the
anon_vmas attached to the new VMA in case setting up the new anon_vma
fails.

This bug also has the potential to leave behind anon_vma_chain structs
with pointers to invalid memory.
