Subject[RESEND PATCH v3 0/2] Tracking user space vDSO remaping
CRIU is recreating the process memory layout by remapping the checkpointee
memory area on top of the current process (criu). This includes remapping
the vDSO to the place it has at checkpoint time.

However some architectures like powerpc are keeping a reference to the vDSO
base address to build the signal return stack frame by calling the vDSO
sigreturn service. So once the vDSO has been moved, this reference is no
more valid and the signal frame built later are not usable.

This patch serie is introducing a new mm hook 'arch_remap' which is called
when mremap is done and the mm lock still hold. The next patch is adding the
vDSO remap and unmap tracking to the powerpc architecture.

- rebased on 4.0.0

Changes in v3:
- Fixed grammatical error in a comment of the second patch.
Thanks again, Ingo.

Changes in v2:
- Following the Ingo Molnar's advice, enabling the call to arch_remap through
the __HAVE_ARCH_REMAP macro. This reduces considerably the first patch.
