This is the patch I propose:

nfsd: Fix vm overcommit crash

From: Alan Cox <alan@redhat.com>

Junjiro R. Okajima reported a problem where knfsd crashes if you are using
it to export shmemfs objects and run strict overcommit. In this situation
the current->mm based modifier to the overcommit goes through a NULL
pointer.

We could simply check for NULL and skip the modifier but we've caught other
real bugs in the past from mm being NULL here - cases where we did need a
valid mm set up (eg the exec bug about a year ago).

To preserve the checks and get the logic we want shuffle the checking
around and add a new helper to the vm_ security wrappers

Also fix a current->mm reference in nommu that should use the passed mm
