Subject[PATCH 06/14] uprobes: suppress uprobe_munmap() from mmput()
uprobe_munmap() does get_user_pages() and it is also called from
the final mmput()->exit_mmap() path. This slows down exit/mmput()
for no reason, and I think it is simply dangerous/wrong to try to
fault-in a page into the dying mm. If nothing else, this happens
after the last sync_mm_rss(), afaics handle_mm_fault() can change
the task->rss_stat and make the subsequent check_mm() unhappy.

Change uprobe_munmap() to check mm->mm_users != 0.
