Updated and tested version is below.

Subject: [PATCH] c/r: prctl: Simplify PR_SET_MM on mm::code/data assignment v2
The mm::start_code, end_code, start_data, end_data members
are set during startup of executable file and are not changed
after.

But the program itself might map new executable or/and data areas in
time so the original values written into mm fields mentioned above
might not have correspond VMA area at all, thus if one try to
use this prctl codes without underlied VMA, the error will be
returned.

Drop this requirement. This shrinks the code and eliminates
redundant calls to vma_flags_mismatch. The worst thing one can
do (if say to write some bad values here) -- the weird results
will be shown in /proc/$pid/statm or in /proc/pid/stat.

Still, assignement of data on stack (such as command line and
environment variables) requires the underlied VMA to exist.

v2:
Also make sure the address being set is greater than mmap_min_addr.
Suggested by Kees Cook.
