Subject[Patch 0/3] threaded mmap tweaks

I've been looking at a micro-benchmark that basically starts a few
threads which then each allocate some memory (via mmap), use it briefly
and then free it again (munmap). During this benchmark the mmap_sem gets
contended and as a result things go less well than expected. The patches
in this series improved the benchmark by 3% on a wallclock time basis.
