Like this?

mm, mempolicy: stop adjusting current->il_next in mpol_rebind_nodemask()

The task->il_next variable stores the next allocation node id for task's
MPOL_INTERLEAVE policy. mpol_rebind_nodemask() updates interleave and
bind mempolicies due to changing cpuset mems. Currently it also tries to
make sure that current->il_next is valid within the updated nodemask. This is
bogus, because 1) we are updating potentially any task's mempolicy, not just
current, and 2) we might be updating a per-vma mempolicy, not task one.

The interleave_nodes() function that uses il_next can cope fine with the value
not being within the currently allowed nodes, so this hasn't manifested as an
actual issue.

We can remove the need for updating il_next completely by changing it to
il_prev and store the node id of the previous interleave allocation instead of
the next id. Then interleave_nodes() can calculate the next id using the
current nodemask and also store it as il_prev, except when querying the next
node via do_get_mempolicy().
