SubjectRe: BUG FIX?: mm->rss is modified in some places without holding the page_table_lock

Would this do? This is a subset of Davej's patch. I also noted that
fs/{exec.c,binfmt_aout.c,binfmt_elf.c} modifies rss without holding
the lock. I think exec.c needs it, but am at a loss whether the
binfmt_* does too. The second patch below adds the lock to fs/exec.c.

Comments?
