SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/5] mmap: don't assume f_op->mmap() doesn't change vma->vm_file

It does use "file" again in the unmap_and_free_vma error path
(isn't that reasonable? if the ->mmap failed, it shouldn't have
mucked with vma; and even if it has, then we'd better not change
the current behaviour of which to fput), but I don't see where else.

Further down, covering both vma->vm_file previously set and previously
unset cases, there is a "file = vma->vm_file;" before file is used.
So I think this patch is not necessary - if it is necessary, it's
already a bug, because already we switch from /dev/zero to a
shmem file there.
