Subject[PATCH 06/28] always lock the root (oldest) anon_vma
From: Rik van Riel <riel@redhat.com>

Always (and only) lock the root (oldest) anon_vma whenever we do something in an
anon_vma. The recently introduced anon_vma scalability is due to the rmap code
scanning only the VMAs that need to be scanned. Many common operations still
took the anon_vma lock on the root anon_vma, so always taking that lock is not
expected to introduce any scalability issues.

However, always taking the same lock does mean we only need to take one lock,
which means rmap_walk on pages from any anon_vma in the vma is excluded from
occurring during an munmap, expand_stack or other operation that needs to
exclude rmap_walk and similar functions.

Also add the proper locking to vma_adjust.

v3:
- fix locking inversion in vma_adjust, spotted by Andrea
- mm_take_all locks needs to use the bitflag in the root anon_vma,
since that is the one that gets locked (Andrea Arcangeli)
v2:
- conditionally take the anon_vma lock in vma_adjust, like introduced
in 252c5f94d944487e9f50ece7942b0fbf659c5c31 (with a proper comment)
