Don't know what the other cases were.

Overlayfs case is completely state free. It just does a copy-up in
the case of a shared mapping so that subsequent modifications of that
file get reflected in the shared mapping. Can't do the copy-up with
mmap_sem held due to locking depencencies.

Did a couple of iterations and got some good feedback. But can post
the current version, if you think that's useful.
